It is out of season and the temporary employee Pierre of an amusement park seaside has all his savings stolen by the crook Simeon Guant, a friend of his girlfriend Kelly Phillips. Kelly is daughter of the owner of the park, Michael Philipps, who is married with Eileen Phillips. Eileen cheats her husband with Simeon, and they plot to kill Michael simulating a burglary and get his life insurance. Pierre, without any money, associates to the owner of a bar, the former thief Harry Barlow, who teaches him how to burglar. The reunion of these six characters has no happy ending.Written by

low life dreams well described
I liked the movie. The characters matched the setting perfectly. The characters are shifty and edgy and not quite right as is the decaying off season amusement park where they hover. The movie was possibly too violent at the end but the viewer could see that the rot would never come to a peaceful resolution.Their Low life dreams were well described. I liked the bleakness of the unused boardwalk, the sounds of the rides being tested, the rain bucket which catches water from a leak that would have been there for years. Mary Poppins would not like this neighborhood . And the characters who cling there dream small time dreams...small scores which they think are big but the viewer knows are not worth the effort.
