I once watched a movie or telefim. Here are the details I remember:

  • The main actress was Heather Graham. The story revolves around her.

  • She wanted to be a music superstar, but working as a waitress in a restaurant. The money was the main hurdle in achieving her dream (this is what she thought).

  • In restaurant, she used to meet several customers who wanted to lure her into prostitute business or something like that.

  • She got a boyfriend at beach. She was sleeping and then a guy came to ask if she had extra cigarettes and then he pulled out cigarettes. This is how they met for the first time.

  • Initially, the boyfriend used to encourage her for her dreams. Later, he made her take drugs and then she became a drug addict.

  • One day, she broke up with him because of the drug issues. She wanted her old dreamy life back.

  • Later, this ex-boyfriend came to the restaurant and ask her to leave with him. Upon refusal, he pulled out gun and made everyone there hostage. The plan was: Loot out all of the money there (restaurant's and customers') and run away with the girl.

  • Then, police came outside and started threatening him. Due to fear, he accidentally murdered someone.

  • The actress unwillingly agreed to run away with him, but in the process of escape (Window glass breaking or something like that), she had a chance to grab the gun.

  • After some thought, she pulled the trigger to kill him.

Can you please identify this movie/telefilm?
