This is the story of a young man's circuitous journey from drug dependency and petty crime to a life redeemed by this startling discovery of compassion. The story is set in the drug subculture of the 1970's, and it's protagonist -- a young man in his twenties (Crudup) -- spends his days high on drugs, stealing, or scamming a quick buck. On the other hand, he is also driven by an overwhelming desire to help those around him, but he repeatedly fails.

Almost by a miracle, redemption does come to him. Now, whoever he meets, his attempts to prove his worth are either oddly touching, futile or often both.


Billy Crudup, Samantha Morton, Denis Leary, Holly Hunter, Dennis Hopper, Jack Black, Michael Shannon, Miranda July, Will Patton
