Rico Santana believes there are two kinds of people in the world: the ones walking on the streets, and the ones living on them. He lives and breathes them. As a street dealer who fell from grace and became a junkie, Rico knows that addiction and junkies come in all forms. Rico and his girlfriend Jesse live in a low level tenement in Los Angeles. They both have king size speedball habits and are scraping the bottom of the barrel of life doing whatever it takes to get by. Surrounded by a crew with various habits of their own, this underground world of characters is virtually invisible to the average person working nine to five. But Rico and his boys are in a constant chase for money to cop dope. They spend days figuring out the next scam and then how to make it even bigger. Addiction, like love, can drive you to do things you never could have imagined...until you got a habit that needs filling or a person you can't live without.
Multiple Sons of Anarchy actors appear in this which is also directed by a SOA cast member, David Labrava who played Happy. See more »
Trainspotting, but better.
I put this on for background noise and it ended up engulfing my attention entirely. This movie does a great job showing addiction at it's worst. The only gripe I have is that I feel like the ending leaves too much unsaid. The whole arc with the two men in the apartment is just kind of pushed quickly to the side. It just feels like the movie could have been done without them and yet it was still my favorite part until the lack of any real conclusion for them or how they even really fit in the story.
