Synopsis

New York City, 1978. When Lupe, a Puerto Rican-American teen, meets fellow runaway Debbie, the Bowery’s punk scene and the Lower East Side are their playground. Battlescar follows a year in their life, utilizing Lupe’s handwritten journal to guide us through their experience, as Debbie introduces Lupe to the Punk scene and exposes her to the secret worlds co- existing in the Lower East Side in the late 1970’s.
