Main actress: Named Jazmine Owens, 24 yr Caucasian scene girl who happens to like metal, is a bit of a feminist, likes the night sky, hanging around playgrounds at night, walking alone.
She is a deep character with a philosophical side and many thoughts to share, but is a bit of a tomboy and not as girly as most girls, she is quite tough, but down to earth, sharp, smart, and witty, but she is polite and fair in her judgement which makes her different from many girls. Though first she begins with a douchebag guy who pisses her off beyond what she can take.. she then leaves him after 4 years of being together.. this is when she decides to be lesbian, though she has always felt some attraction to women all this time so maybe this is her outlet to finally explore that side.. to her surprise, she finds out she is a big lesbian.
The main love interest that comes her way is a native American male named Alley short for Alexandric.. last name unknown. He is a guitarist in a metal band, tough, but has a very deep side to him, a bit of a coquette, and has a the right touch of feminine side in him, which later on Jaz really likes about him. Alley as well enjoys night walks but tends to stay on the main roads until one night he decides to venture to a park to meet up with a girl who texted him. There swinging on the swings, he finds Jazmine Owens. Jazmine first sees Alley at a show, she loses her earring in a mosh pit, later goes backstage with a group of girls to see the band, after they make they're leave Alley notices Jazmine looking at him as she leaves, he noticed she was concerned that she lost her earring. Before the girls go for a beer, Alley comes out and confronts Jazmine, nick named "Jazzy Taz" becus of her crazy similarities and love for the Tasmanian Devil. Alley goes and finds the earring for her in a crazy mosh pit, Jazzy can see him throwing guys left and right but not hitting any of them. He then comes out with the earring, Jazmine surprised by such an act as she has never experienced someone going through that much trouble for her.. they have a small chat before the band and a car full of girls takes him away, Jaz's only chance with him flies away.
Jaz hangs back with her friend she is roomies with and they talk briefly about the concert, Alley is mentioned in the convo.. Jaz asks her friend a lil about him and her friend named Krysta teases Jaz playfully, as Jaz is a lesbian.. Krysta pokes fun saying Jaz likes Alley.. though clearly Jaz has no feelings for him at the time nore any real interest in men, she is just merely intrigued by him. She catches herself sneaking on the computer at night searching parts of the internet for Alley and the band, though not too successful. Eventually days on, Krysta catches Jaz, then decides to help her.
They find out though he goes on tour across the states, he doesn't live too far from them. They are successful in getting his fone number via a close friend. Many nights out later with the girls, she decides to send a crazy text message to Alleys phone, clearly having been drinking, she works up the courage to send the actual text not knowing what she had sent the next morning.. waking up to a text back with a reply of "Who's this?". Jaz cannot believe what she had done, her heart pounding out of embarrassment, she keeps her cool and after contemplating the sit.. replies back.. a few texts are exchanged while she is in bed in her undies.. nothing too interesting comes of the texts that morning... Jaz feeling like hard reality comes and hits her that a rockstar doesn't have time to pay attention to one girl when many are chasing him.. so she gives up after that. She goes out with her friends some lesbo some not, on this nite her friends make fun of a nice guy and jaz sits by laughing until she sees the ultimate sadness in the guys face as he walks away, feeling very distraught. This is Jazmine starting to see the bad sides of some women..
She decides to make a group of friends on the net, looking for some of the lonely guys and singled out dorky girls, as she is looking to create something great with good friends and make the losers feel like winners. Jaz goes out regularly on night walks on her own, contemplating many things in her life, why she chooses to hang with bad people and trying to figure out just who she really is. She takes no protection with her.. she is a fighter and never one to cry. On her nights out, her thoughts are played in echo form.. poetry from her soul is narrated in her voice.. she likes walking around dark dead trees as they give her tickles in her stomach, kind of a thrill for her. In a way she is a goth. She talks to herself as well as she jokingly likes to say " people think i'm crazy for talking to myself, but honestly I am the only intelligent person I can think of to talk to". Asking and answering her own questions quite often, her wisdom comes from observing the night. She loves orange street lights and the lights of the cities overview. She is strangely in love with freeways, and they sound like the ocean to her, and as she says " look at the cars.. look at every car.. they are all going somewhere in life, some to a terrible destination, others with a great limerence in their being, but in anycase they are all moving forward., a way to live.. live by the freeway, the free way." Jaz receives a text from... guess who, Alley. This leaves jaz with limerence in herself as she drops what she was thinking about to pay attention to this new development. They start to chat bits at a time.. Alley being a night owl himself finds a few things in common with Jaz.. Though wanting to meet up with her, he doesn't ask for risk of sounding too forward.. though jaz being the girl she is playfully asks "you should come swing with me sometime :)". Alley responds with "Hmm, ur not afraid of meeting a random stranger?" to which Jaz replies "I fear no stranger, besides I listen to ur music all the time, ur no stranger to me :3".. then Alley smiles. He pushes that he has a GF and can only be friends with Jaz, though Jaz also asserts that she is a lesbian and nothing would ever happen anyway. They arrange to get food and meet each other on a Wednesday night.
This is the night jaz gets attacked. As she sits on the swingsets alone at night, waiting for Alley.. she picks at the fries and eats while looking up at the stars.. then the person she things is Alley is actually a rapist. Jaz is attacked, at this time Alley just pulled up in the car and chased after the guy giving him a good butt kicking before he fleas off. At this point Alley calls off the night but Jaz is adiment to hang with him, seeing as she wasn't really harmed.. she insists on having the night she planned.. so Alley suggests to hang elsewhere. This is the first of many of their nights, but their first night was not as great becus of the previous attack, however their chemistry made the night a relatively good one. Their next night together that Saturday however was one of the greatest experiences Jaz has ever had with a man.. Jaz tells Alley she is forming a bit of a pact, all good friends welcome.. Alley likes this idea, having been famous for a while he lost touch of real friends and is bombarded constantly by people who only want to be friends for his money and fame. So he helps her form a group of genuine people.. life long friends.
One by one they select people who look like they have been rejected from the majority of popularity groups.. they themselves end up having great fun at the beach, during roadtrips, and doing things many people don't get to do, like ziplining, hanggliding, having a bbq right in the middle of the freeway at night in the least busiest freeway, one of their more unique gatherings. Jaz once states that if Alley was a girl, she would marry him. In one part of the movie, a little kid, who looks like life could be better, brings Jazzy a few flowers and asks if they could go on a date.. Jaz replies, "Awww how very sweet, and look how cute u are! I'm sorry but I'm too old... i'm icky and ancient", the boy says" well I think you're hot".. Jaz laughs, but then gives the kid a quick hug and rubs his head saying "Ur a real charmer, maybe next time, okay?"
As Alley and Jaz hang out more often, Alley's GF starts to get a little jealous and tries to exercise control over Alley by telling him not to hang with her or that he cant have any girl in his life except her, not even as a friend. Things get harder between Alley and his GF, though she was never relationship material in the first place. Krysta, one of the members of Alley and Jaz's friends.. witnesses Alley's GF.. cheating with another man. Alley is notified but doesn't believe Krysta at first until she shows him a vid on her fone. This is when Alley's character goes into a revengeful, lonely faze for a while.. Breaking up with his GF and separating himself from the band for a while. Jaz has a final word with Alley's Ex and lets her have it. Afterward, Alley goes with another group of friends and disappears for a while. Jaz texts him constantly only to receive nothing in return. She checks his FB and finds that it has been deleted. For the first time in a while, Jaz is actually sleeping early.. A few weeks pass by and still she has heard nothing from him.. Her journey with the Metal guitarist is seemingly over.
She takes one good look out at the city lights at night on her own.. staring into it with a somewhat disturbed emotion on her face, she screams out at the top of her lungs in anger.. after a period of panting and trying to process what exactly she is feeling, she realizes that the freeways of life take u many different ways and directions.. someone u may like could be veering off into another leading freeway while you go the other way.. she is more so concerned about Alley and his feelings. Jazmine starts to question whether sexuality matters over chemistry, her being a lesbian. Though she is not attracted to guys.. she sits and contemplates.. she sees a flash in her mind.. she sees children in her future.. and this makes her wonder why she isn't attracted to the man she thought was quite perfect. She decides to hang with some of the girls again and go to a bar to take the edge off.. explaining to her friends that she did have a great time with Alley. Jaz sends one more text to Alley but being a bit buzzed she writes out that she wishes he didn't go, and she would take care of him from all the loser women in this world.. even though she is not interested in men.. Alley made her feel different about some men. As she explains, Alley has this magic touch, and she doesn't know what it is but it made her heart feel safe, though she is a tough girl, she is still a girl that has that need to feel protected.. and Alley fulfilled that in her. After sending a lengthy text in almost all caps, alley replies back moments later.. about this time Jazmine starts a bar fight.. and after given a black eye by a guy there.. she walks and trips her way out with friends, Alley calls her wanting to talk, Jazmine and her friends tell Alley what happened. So not only Alley, but his whole band come racing in a car ready to drop bombs. As soon as they get there, Jaz gets in wanting to leave.. but Alley wont have it. On his own, He walks into the bar and the rest of the crew wait by the car.. the next thing that happens is a guy flying out the door/window.. Alley jumping right out and taking out all guys there, the rest of the band run to help him out, even Jazmine joins in and starts throwing fists, ends out with sirens and everyone bust out of there.
Alley develops protective feelings over Jazmine and takes care of her wounds.. she insists on going home and just throwing an ice bag on her eye. Alley takes Jaz to his home and offers to sleep on the couch while she sleeps in his bed. Jaz comes down and sees Alley sleeping, she feels though he is an angel. She goes back upstairs and notices some of alley's things, seeing how caring a guy he is, she decides to try and see what would happen if she tried falling for him. Next morning she is seen cooking breafast for Alley. She tells him that has been thinking about Alley, and that she knows she is lesbo but wants to try out an "expiriment" to see if she could feel anything more for him. They date for about 2 weeks, though no kisses have occured, they did try holding hands once in a while, jaz felt uncomfortable but stuck with it. After some time things go pretty well for them, and jaz actually finds what she feels may actually be attraction for Alley, though she is not sure, however she is enjoying it meantime. Alley and Jaz decide to go to a club one night and have a great time, them now being a little more physical, yet still not having kissed each other.. they go with friends to have a great time and check out as many places that night as they could. Jaz's ex boyfriend from a few years ago shows up at the club with his friends. Goes up to jaz and tries to put the moves on her... talking to her, jaz clearly not wanting to talk to him decides to lead him on a bit, then he gets excited.. Jaz leads him to another exit saying she will have a good time with him outside, Jaz lets him go outside first, then she closes the door behind him.. only being able to open the door from the inside. Alley comes up to her from going to the restroom, asking "what's up".. jaz replies.. "just had to take out the dog" to which Alley replies "another one eh?" they both laugh and join the gang again. Jaz's ex manages to get back in and while Jaz isn't noticing, drugs her drink. Everyone goes out to the dance floor, but jaz is feeling a little too tipsy.. she can't tell whats going on.. but her ex is taking her to a different place in the club. Alley doesnt see jaz and wonders where she is but thinks nothing of it. At this time jaz is taken down a corridor to another room, vision overlapping and echoes, she blacks out right about when she is brought to a room and stripped down. An hour passes and Alley still hasn't seen jaz, so he goes looking. He calls her out and asks others if they saw a scene girl with big hair come by.. nobody can tell him where. Jazz soon regains consiousness and wakes up in a bed with someone next to her. Still dumbfounded she looks around the room. Alley comes down the corridors calling her name. Jazmine pulls the sheets from over her ex and gets furious. Yelling at him, Alley can hear her voice and follows til he finds the room.. when ally walks in, he sees Jaz almost completely naked with another dude in bed.. Alley is stunned by what he sees and leaves in a troubling angry manner. Jaz calls out to Alley and puts her clothes on, her ex makes a smart remark and Jaz swipes a good hook right to his face. She puts her shirt on and runs to the door, not before coming back to wam her ex once more in his jewels. Jaz barely catches up with Alley only to see him already leaving in a car, and she is too late to catch him. Time goes by without them talking, and jazmine goes out for more night walks, but around the main streets. She texts Alley constantly trying to explain what happened. Alley tells her to come by to pick up some of her stuff.
The next day Alleys Ex calls him, in an attempt to get back with him.. but Alley isn't so quick to talk with her.. however they talk, and she insist they can work everything out.. so they set a date to meet up a week after. When jasmine hears about this, she is furious and tries to talk to Alley, telling not to get back with that backstabber, and she could treat him better if she was straight.. Alley then replies in a disturbed state that he would be with Jazmine and want to be happy with her til they die.. but notes that she is a lesbian and all they will ever be is friends. Before Alley walks out, Jazmine shouts him to wait.. and says "let me try something.. I want you to hold me.... please?" After a moment, Jaz backs up into Alley and he holds her.. When the moment is done Alley asks if its doing anything for her.. and she replies that there's nothing there.. it doesn't feel right for her to be held by a man.. but she would rather not see Alley hurt again..... Alley makes his way out. Later that night Alley has plans to go see his ex and try to make things work. On one of her walks.. right before it starts to get dark.. Jaz sees Alley's ex.. a small confrontation. Jazmine explains that Alley is a terrific man and doesn't need a cheater like her.. Jaz tells her to back out, that she shouldn't be dating if she is cheating. A bitterness of words go on, with Alley's ex marking territory around Alley, accusing jaz of wanting alley for herself, though she mentions she is lesbian... then says if she wasn't that she would probably marry him. After more bitter words, jaz leaves. During her walk home she is bothered and perplexed by many questions about her life, many scenarios that played out.. if her and Alley were to be together and how great life would be. Jaz makes one final trip before going back to Alley's. She stops by her lesbian FwB Jana. Asks her about her opinion on sex and chemistry with men and women. Jaz get's an answer that almost clarifies what she wants. Alley shows up, and Jaz is on the couch in front of the fire place.. After Alley puts the food on the table he goes to see how Jaz is doing. He sees that she is semi troubled.. but she is hiding her struggle very well. After Alley goes to prepare her something to eat.. She sits there with many flashes of images in her mind.. asking hundreds of questions.. feeling overwhelmed.. she comes to the unbelievable conclusion that she is indeed in love with Alley.. a gentle tear rolls down her cheek as she is in awe and disbelief.. her world became upside-down for that moment and didn't know what to think. She was convinced she liked women.. but feels as though alley is no woman nor man.. but he is something very different.. he is.. Alley. When Alley comes with a bottle of wine as a friendly gesture.. he sits down, with an innocent smile on his face.. though he must leave in moments to meet up with his ex.. Jaz looks at Alley in silence for a few seconds.. in her mind says "life's a trip".. then jumps on him with the most passionate kiss she has ever given anyone. Wine spilt on the floor.. Alley pushes back jaz just for a moment and says her name.. then says "jasmine.. but you're a.." she then interrupts and says "i'm on a freeway and I don't know where i'll end up.. but I know I want to be with u when it ends". Alley's only words next were "you can't turn back after this.. u know freeways are only one way Jazmine". Jazmine pauses... and ends it with "I love you! and will til the end". They kiss on the floor and their body's move with the flow of the waves. Alley's Ex is left standing outside a restaurant, leaving with the remark "jerk"
At the end of the movie.. alley tells jasmine to humor the young kid with a date for a day, and gives the young kid a kiss on the cheek.. the kid replies " thank u for going on a date with me, I hope I find someone like you when i'm older." He then says to Alley, "thanks for letting me date your girl" and alley replies "no problem, stay up.. don't do drugs". Movie ends with all of the friends Alley and Jaz made during their travels, and everyone is seen having a rad time at night, doing roadtrips and getting wet at the beach, all smiles and laughs.
