A week in lovely Los Angeles in 1983, featuring movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters in adventures laced with sex, drugs and violence.
A multi-strand narrative set in early 1980’s Los Angeles, centered on an array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con).
Connecting the intertwining strands are a group of beautiful, blonde young men and women who sleep all day and party all night, doing drugs .. and one another .. while never realizing that they are dancing on the edge of a volcano.

This film represents the good portion of the 80’s, one in which I never quite experienced to full capacity. In 1989 I had a Nissan Pular, a mullet and had just graduated from High School. I never really tried many drugs, but the one time I did, I ended up with a 300lb French Canadian beauty named “Cory”.
