Equipped with platinum blonde hair and a winning smile, NYC college girl Leah (Homeland’s Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form. Between getting high with her roommate and snorting lines with her boss, Leah falls for Blue (Brian Marc), a young man dealing drugs on her corner.
Within days, the two are selling dime bags to her boss (The Hangover’s Justin Bartha) and his downtown friends, collecting fast cash, and living the high life.. But summer love crashes to a halt when Blue is arrested and Leah is left with a ton of his coke. Enlisting the aid of an overpriced lawyer (Chris Noth) Leah finds herself deep in debt and over her head as she pushes all limits get Blue back.
Executive produced by Christine Vachon (Boys Don’t Cry, Kids) and deliriously filmed in and around New York City, White Girl thrashes through an increasingly high-stakes game of hedonism. Unspoken socioeconomic tensions – coupled with a blatant disregard for consequence – ignite in a fearless exploration of race, gender and youth, inspired by the director’s own experiences.
