This remarkable youth movie is an epic of teen alienation, set against the backdrop of Japan's pervasive pop/cyber culture. A troubled group of schoolchildren - confronted by bullies, parents from another planet and lurid snapshots of sex and death - seek sanctuary with pop star Lily Chou-Chou, embracing her sad, dreamy songs and sharing their secrets in Lilyholic chat rooms.
