The Tracey Fragments is based on the 1998 novel of the same name by Maureen Medved who also wrote the screenplay. The story centres on Tracey Berkowitz, who is 15-years old, and like a lot of girls that age she might be normal, whatever that means, but she also hates herself. Most of the action takes place on a city bus as it moves aimlessly through the night. Tracey is clearly traumatized and sits in the back of the bus, naked except for a torn shower curtain, looking for her brother, Sonny, who has gone missing. He also thinks he’s a dog. Shot in just 14 days in and around Hamilton and Brantford, Ontario, some interior scenes were shot at Wallace Studios in Toronto.
