‘If you feel safe and comfortable ... remove yourself from that situation. Never settle for anything less. Find comfort in not ever feeling safe.'
In this gritty exploration of the psyche of a young Los Angeles addict, the traumas and joys of life's daily struggles are laid bare as he pursues fulfilment in drugs, sex and alcohol. A rugged journey through life involving hangovers, physical and mental disorientation and despair is punctuated by regular highs, sexual ecstasy and companionship in adversity. Issues of conscience are examined with a stark rawness as the search for self-identity can only be pursued from deep within. Confrontation with inner demons and society's expectations demands soul-searching that questions the most fundamental motivation for existence.
