While on the bus the date flashes on the screen revealing that film takes place on December 24, 2014. It was primarily filmed on December 24, 2013, and all of the posters and billboards of movies are for ones released in January or February of 2014 (e.g. a billboard of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).

Surprisingly entertaining . . . and more than a bit all too real
A fabulous character study, gritty slice of life, walk on the wild side comedy . . . any variety of possible descriptions come to mind.
But no matter how one tries to frame this uniquely crafted work, despite its very low production budget (this entire movie was filmed with iPhones?), it's still surprisingly entertaining.
I could try to encapsulate the drama (and yes, drama, as in on the street, way over the edge drama) between the two main characters, and the meandering ill fated adventures that sprout up along the way, but actually, better that you simply watch and experience for yourself.
No spoilers, not even a hint . . . but what I will suggest here, the time spent to watch this will not be wasted.
Kudos to a very clever bit of street drama compressed into a simple but engaging journey into and through a collection of lives that are all too real out in certain sections of town, which in this case happens to be West Hollywood.
