A typical day in the life of a drug dealer. A dark, depressive tale which takes place in the hypnotic atmosphere of a city resembling a ghost town. Extremely difficult, but also a totally modern film.
A typical day in the life of a drug dealer. First he has to bring some cocaine to the leader of a sect. Then he visits a friend who was seriously burnt in a solarium and needs his final fix. A former classmate, who stores his stash, informs him that she can no longer do so. An old flame, also a junkie, confesses to him that he is the father of her little girl. The dealer searches for another client, a black marketeer hooked on drugs and pills, but instead he meets only his angry sister. Then a student asks for help: her roommate has eaten too many hallucinogenic mushrooms. Another old friend has a different problem: his mother fell into spiritualism when she lost her job and now uses him as a medium... A dark, depressing tale which takes place in the hypnotic atmosphere of a city resembling a ghost town. Extremely demanding, but also a totally modern film.
