Tagline: Some kids have lots of time to kill.

Plot: In director Robert Schmidt's adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (the "in Suburbia" is Schmidt's addition), the role of the protagonist is played not by a troubled young man who kills his landlady, but by a teenage girl (Monica Keena) who murders an older man who has been molesting her. The punishment, rather than a police interrogation and exile to Siberia, is a series of psychological discussions with a common cop who has a romantic interest in her. An interesting take on an old story, the film raises the nagging moral questions: When is a crime justifiable? and How does the punishment fit the crime?
