Post Empire

Sal has the war within him. And he doesn't want anyone to touch his face. He sometimes does dirty and risky jobs for his boss. When he meets the charismatic Sasha, he screws up an important coup and gets a taste of his boss's disturbing violence. Sal goes into hiding. For Sasha's sake, he gets involved in a heady tour de force with her friends Andy and Lucy, which causes Sal to undergo an incredible metamorphosis. Together they get lost in a labyrinth of drugs, sex, fears, violence and disorientation. Delicate and cruel, real and surreal, terrifying and strangely funny, love must be reinvented, real life lies elsewhere. But when his boss's henchmen track down the four, defenseless, at an old farmhouse, a massacre is imminent.
