  Synopsis: In 1984, the most powerful drug dealer on the west coast was a 19 year old coed. Based on actual events. Angie is a working-class girl who is forced by financial necessity to become an expert in making the party drug Ecstasy in the chemistry lab at her prestigious West Coast university. In 1985, the year First Lady Nancy Reagan dropped a hyperactive "Just Say No" music video with Casey Kasem and LaToya Jackson, the DEA criminalized a new drug: ecstasy. "MDMA", Angie Wang’s semi-autobiographical drama about her whirlwind freshman semester as the drug queen of a private college she couldn’t otherwise afford, plunges us into the crazy days of those last legal months when the chemistry student’s handmade purple pills were potent enough to derail her life. Wang has a silent cameo as a club czarina who gives her younger self (Annie Q.) a portentous look. Otherwise, "MDMA" is all excess: giant hair, stacks of silver bangles, dramatic flashbacks, and lots of shouting, though curiously Angie sounds less like an immigrant’s daughter from the Newark tenements than a Valley girl throwing a temper tantrum at the mall.
