Caught in the jagged downtown world of drugs, prostitutes, and violence, 3 young artists lead tumultuous lives in desperate need of an overhaul. Relationships stumble as careers take flight. Support and friendship slip into betrayal. For some, there is redemption. For others, death. The comedic, the pathetic, the talented, and the ruined all walk the same raw streets in this gritty, sensitive, and funny story of survival. Ryan Reynolds, Helen Shaver, Barry Pepper, and Rene Auberjonois star.
