Speed freaks. Hustlers. Star-fuckers. Down-and-outs. Everyone at the Jack in the Box on Sunset Boulevard is looking for a way out. A drug-dealing street shaman named Candy is convinced that she’s got the fix that will set them free.

Jack and Linda return home to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn after a disastrous turn living as punks on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. They find unlikely friends in Oscar and Gertie, their new neighbors. Life on the grid is sweet— the two couples botch renovations, burn dinner, play records, light bottle rockets, dub video cassettes, drink Budweiser, sneak joints on their back porches and raise their kids as best as they can. Some years later, a tragedy strikes on Dooley Street that forces the two young families to face down the pull of their addictions, the ghosts that plague their love nests and in the end, the fatal lengths two mothers will go to for the sake of protecting their young.
