Includes a conversation with writer/director/producer Angie Wang
Reserve tickets starting July 18
Inspired by true events… It’s 1984 and a working-class woman, Angie Wang (Annie Q.) from Newark, NJ, is about to start her freshman year at a prestigious San Francisco university. On her first day, she meets her new roommate, a rich girl named Jeanine Rockwell (Francesca Eastwood), and the two bond over booze, boys and their first taste of freedom. Raised by her strict father in an urban neighborhood, the sudden jolt from hardship to privileged campus life proves to be a challenge for Angie. When her financial aid is cut, she uses her book and street smarts, along with school resources, to synthesize the increasingly popular drug, ecstasy. Angie becomes one of the west coast’s largest distributors of “X,” cutting deals on campus and in posh nightclubs. Her dual life as the model minority coed and profit-driven drug dealer is further complicated by her desire to help Bree, a girl from one of the Bay Area’s most infamous neighborhoods, who reminds her of her own dark past.
