About Demolition Girl

DEMOLITION GIRL opens with a high school student crushing small toys and cans with her feet. The stomping could be easily taken as an outlet of small-town teenage angst. But for Cocoa, this is work, as a performer for a small-time fetish DVD producer. With this and her job at a shabby local amusement park, she supports her unemployed father and immature older brother. Their dependence on Cocoa weighs down any hope of her attending college despite being a top student.

With encouragement of her friends, and the unexpected news of an inheritance, Cocoa’s perspective on her future changes. She designs a way out of her provincial existence, which includes financial aid — and more “crash video” performance for money. But things rapidly unravel as the men in her life fail her through recklessness and betrayal, and Cocoa is driven to bring her on-camera destructive fantasy to life.
