A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.

A true and funny portrait of life in LA. Shot in real time.
I enjoyed the freedom of filmmaking and story telling. It is less pretentious than dogma films and in the same time truer to their ideology. The film captures the empiness of Los Angeles, of the life of a few misfits on an absurd journey through out the city. What is funny and original about the story is that there is no real self discovery being made. Every one start off neurotic and lost and end up neurotic and lost in the desert.
