In a future where emotion and desire have been wiped away by an unshakable new narcotic, society exists simply to provide a constant source of the drug. Crumbling Yerba city stands empty, except for its drug-parlors, where the remnants of the population cluster, drifting towards oblivion. Only the android attendants are still capable of action, mindlessly maintaining and administering the 'drip'. Years after escaping to the wastelands outside the city, Claire, one of the few people left who is not an addict, returns looking for the one man who still matters to her. As she makes her way through the dazed world of the city's junkies, only one person seems able to provide any help: the obsessive and self-destructive Miles, the last of the city's security officers. Genetically engineered to be immune to the drug, Miles' strange charisma draws Claire to him, but when he brutally guns down a group of harmless dissidents, she begins to doubt she can really trust anyone. With no other leads, ... Written by Michael Ferris Gibson <>

Moody SciFi Drama
4 July 2004 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Sometimes slow but always atmospheric submersion into a future world where almost everyone is addicted to the drip. People lounge about in zombie-like trances while main character searches for her father - inventor of the drip.

She has 'help' from one of the few other characters not on the sauce. The film presents a completely self contained universe that is moody, strange, and whole. To make this work on a shoestring budget is quite an accomplishment - one of several things it shares with the original "Night of the Living Dead". This one isn't likely to turn up at your local multiplex but will be worth searching out on video when the time comes.
