Storyline

Lahn is a heroin addict who will do anything for his dose. After he robs his roommate, Denis, he shows up at the door of Denis' best friend, Trevor, to see if he will hide him for a while. He, who is terrified of women, agrees to let him stay in his apartment. In return for shelter and his daily dose, Trevor turns him into his slave and then into his dream girl, Dorothy. He uses psychological tactics to twist him into doing everything he asks. Written by Peter Storms <peter_storms@ascp.org>

If you have the chance, SEE IT!!!

Screened at the Roger Ebert Overlooked Film Festival, this is one of the most disturbing, yet funny films I have ever seen. I will never look at domestic abuse in the same light. If you get a chance to view this undiscovered gem, I highly suggest you do.
