In this bizarre character study drama played as a satire of the Cafe Cino/La Mama/Andy Warhol sub-culture, Dewey is a young actor/hustler who has just had sex with an older woman actress, named Miss Gloria, who talks about her lifestyle as a 'compass rose'. After Dewey leaves the apartment, Gloria has over some 'medical doctors' who give her 'medication' involving a blood transfusion. Dewey goes home where his girlfriend, Olive, arrives and shows off some of her latest wardrobe and plays around with him, despite his lack of interest in her. Dewey phones his friend Allen, a hippy who is also a struggling actor and sells drugs on the sides in wanting to look to finance his first directing gig. Meanwhile, Brandex is another bare-chested actor who flirts with Cathy, a dim-witted actress/stoner who debates which blouse to wear for the upcoming show.

This uncompleted movie was partially shot in New York's legendary underground theater, the Caffe Cino. The footage, much sought-after by Caffe Cino scholars, now belongs to Andy Milligan's biographer, Jimmy McDonough. In 2009, he offered it for auction on E-Bay. There were no takers. See more
