Summary
An ambitious young Mexican-American woman compromises her future in a moment of searing humiliation, while a narcissistic action-movie star risks everything in his obsession over an unattainable love
Summary
This sweeping, kaleidoscopic portrait of Los Angeles captures the divided soul of that city through vivid stories of its inhabitants, each living on the fault line between hope and oblivion. A closeted, narcissistic movie star whose obsession with a young talent agent nearly destroys his career; an alcoholic in Venice Beach who finds his life turned upside down when a meth-addled teenage girl shows up half-dead at the restroom he calls home; a nineteen-year-old couple who flee their hometown and struggle to survive on the violent fringes of the city; and the bright young daughter of Mexican immigrants whose humiliating experience as a housekeeper threatens to derail her dreams. Together, these diverse stories provide an X-ray of a city that symbolizes the extremes of American life
