The film highlights the subject of addiction and its many forms through the eyes of six characters. One of the actors, Michael Bugard, plays, “a coke dealer named Bill who is obsessed with making illegal fireworks.” In addition to Bill, the film focuses on three college students, a history teacher, a lawyer and an executive as they all wage war on their personal demons. According to Josh Becker, “Everybody struggles with something. The real question asked is how does anyone get through life? After all, reality is just a crutch for people who can’t handle drugs."
