Unflinching expose of the underground music and drug scene in Northern Nevada follows street level hustler and exotic dancer as they steal both money and drugs and hit the road in this musically powered thrill ride across the Silver State.
T.J. is an early 20s well-meaning street hustler simply trying to find his way. Disillusioned with conventional authority and employment methods, awash with drug money and nowhere to spend it, trouble was inevitable. When T.J. runs an errand for his boss he meets exotic dancer Christy at 'Sweaty Nights', a strip club owned by his boss and her boyfriend - local drug dealer "K". Things begin to unravel when T.J. is given a task to pick up and deliver some mysterious, bulky envelopes. As he genuinely tries to accomplish these tasks, he's quickly led astray through a series of strange, distracting and at times disturbing interactions with local underground street characters. When Christy gets fired for fighting with fellow exotic dancer Rita, who has been not-so-secretly sleeping with K, they team up and hit the road!

The world needs more dark art-house movies like this
I really liked this movie, I'm shocked the budget was so low for such high quality. It's so colorful, looks so much better than other indies. I realize low budget movies can't and shouldn't really be compared to mega budget movies, but it's better than a lot of that garbage coming out of Hollywood at the moment. Those I've seen, this had a plot I never saw coming, twists and turns, very dreamlike. Highly recommended.
I can see how people wouldn't be open to not having a movie force fed to them, leaving them open to determine what they think it means. Seems obvious some people wouldn't get it, so if you don't like indies, or dark art house films, then you probably won't get it, like Twin Peaks, and I really liked the music, even bought the soundtrack.
