Salvadore Ross is a volatile mix of violence and frustration. He's not very bright and hasn't made much of himself so far. He is very much in love with Leah Maitland though she has told him she doesn't want to see him anymore. He thinks she won't see him because her father doesn't approve and that they both think she can do better. When he realizes he can actually exchange parts of himself, like his age, with others he sets out on a path to make himself more acceptable to both of them. Written by

You do something to your hand?
No. I came here for a good night's sleep. The Waldorf was gettin' on my nerves.
I bet it hurts.
Yeah, it hurts.
You're still lucky though.
My luck wins prizes.
No, I mean, I've got this awful congestion in my chest.
Are you grippin' about a cold?
At your age, it just might be a cold. But at mine, it could easily turn into pneumonia. You know young man, you could break both legs and an elbow and you'd still be swimming ...

As the previous reviewer said, you have to take the power that Salvadore has as gospel, or there is no story. This is another story based on irony, as you will see if you watch it to its conclusion. This is a story about power and anger. Ross is a low life who wants power and one day he manages to get it. It's interesting that in some ways he is very wise while also being incredibly short sighted. He doesn't really understand why this girl finds him so repugnant, yet he seems to have a grasp of what will make him attractive to her. She is very up front with him but he really is abusive. There are several scenes of arm grabbing and hurting. This guy is a loose cannon and needs to be stopped, all the other stuff aside. There is justice, however. He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword.
