Overview

The tough and tender sides of New York's homeless underground are documented in this independent drama. After a bicycle accident wounds her body and a rape by her landlord (Rockets Redglare) crushes her spirit, Lisa Napolitano (Rachel Amodeo) finds herself living on the streets of New York City. As Lisa makes her way into the city's homeless community, she's befriended by Nick (Richard Edson), a disturbed but good-hearted Vietnam veteran. However, while she grows to be quite close to Nick, his emotional instability only intensifies her own problems, especially after he disappears. Shot on New York's Lower East Side in and around Tompkins Square Park, an infamous haven for the city's homeless, What About Me features cameo appearances by a number of leading figures in New York's underground rock and art community, including Richard Hell, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Nick Zedd, and Gregory Corso; Thunders also contributed to the film's musical score.
