Synopsis

Oscar Madly is an artistic, sexually confused teen desperate to escape his hometown. Troubled by the strained relationships with his absent mother and emotionally volatile father, Oscar has a tendency to drift into a fantasy world where his anxieties take on very physical forms, including conversations with his pet hamster (voiced by Isabella Rossellini). But when Oscar falls for a brooding new boy at his work, life becomes even more confusing. He decides that he must make sense of the world around him in order to understand what will make him truly happy.
