    • Synopsis
    • Kyle Peoples (Lukas Haas) never wanted to be the man he has become in his 30's - stuck in a dead end job, engaged to a lover who is more successful than he, and saddled with a family that doesn't get him at all. When an innocent night of partying leads to a new family of friends and fun, Kyle sees an opportunity to escape from his reality.
      But Kyle's new friendship with Maia (Necar Zadegan) and Dusty (Blake Berris), and the trio's love of crystal meth eventually cost Kyle everything - his job, his lover, his family and his home.
      Kyle and Dusty rent a room from Maia in the house owned by her grandma Nora (Edith Fields). As any true user does, Kyle embraces denial, diving headlong into his addiction.
      Life seems pretty fucking awesome. Kyle, Dusty and Maia redecorate Kyle's apartment. The walls change color as often as Maia changes outfits. They share thoughts on life and God. They spend hours in thrift stores, vow to get off the meth then get high.
      But Kyle's escape becomes his trap, the party is an illusion and the crystal is slowly killing him, physically and psychologically. When he finally bottoms out, no longer the kid his father once spoke of with pride, Kyle must choose: life or meth.
