Storyline: The life and times of Dawn Davenport, showing her progress from loving schoolgirl to crazed mass murderer – all of which stems from her parents’ refusal to buy her cha-cha heels for Christmas. She runs away from home, is raped, becomes a single mother, criminal and glamorous model before her inevitable rendezvous with the electric chair…
Dave Davenport is an overweight, angry teenager who loathes school along with her 2 friends. It’s nearly Christmas and all she wants is cha-cha heels. When she doesn’t get them for Christmas, she abandons her conventional suburban house and makes love with a greasy guy named Earl. She later gives birth to a daughter she names Taffy who she doesn’t show her any respect. All Dawn does is commit crimes and gets her hair done at a saloon run by a married couple name the Dashers who believe in crime and beauty. They have Dawn become a crime model while Taffy and next door neighbor Ida Nelson try to stop her.
