Dumped by his girlfriend and suffering from an STD, Mutsugoro is a deadbeat actor who travels to his hometown for his high school reunion. As a cast of richly crafted characters pulls Mutsugoro deeper into his own madness, the story weaves in and out of a hallucinatory world packed with excruciating pain, girl troubles, drunken gunshots and paranoia.
