Terry Gilliam's macabre and surreal fairytale centres on young Jeliza-Rose, the neglected daughter of a couple of strung-out drug addicts (Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Tilly), who copes with her lonely life by escaping into a fantasy world populated by bizarre and eccentric characters.

Based on the novel by Mitch Cullin who also has a tiny cameo during a bus scene.
