BattleScar follows a year in the life of Lupe, a Puerto Rican-American living in late 1970s New York City. The film utilises Lupe’s handwritten journal to guide us through her experiences spanning across the year 1978, when she meets Debbie. Debbie introduces Lupe to the Punk scene of the Bowery and exposes her to the secret worlds co-existing on the Lower East Side in the late 70s.
