A hip, urban fairy tale celebrates the glitter and the glamor of teenage punk culture in contemporary Los Angeles. Cooler-than-thou Weetzie is at heart an innocent who wishes for life-long love and happiness when a genie grants her three wishes. But in Weetzie's world her wishes are fulfilled in unusual and surprising ways.
