“Baby, Don’t Cry” is a coming-of-age horror. A story about a withdrawn and sensitive 17-year-old Chinese immigrant, Zita, living in Seattle. She faces taunting from classmates at school and abuse from her fanatically religious mother, Porky, a widow. Isolated and emotionally troubled, Zita finds an outlet in abusing animals and videotaping it. But one day, on the bus home, she meets a 20-year-old, homeless, Mexican boy named Fox, who she falls for fast. She is soon entrenched in a lifestyle of hard-partying nights, law-bending days and co-dependent young love.
