Set throughout one hot wet tumultuous 24 hours within the San Fernando Valley California, a multilayered group of interesting individuals with fractured somewhat self destructive lives collide.
After an epic opening monologue covering various time frames focusing on how everything is linked by a matter of chance and incidents causing and effect of chain reactions the movie kicks into gear fast rarely letting up. There’s a series of encounters by chance, betrayals of deception, shared historical elements and what ‘Jules’ of Pulp Fiction would describe as divine intervention.
A police officer, a home care nurse, a drugged up trophy wife and her dying husband, a junior quiz kid champ all grown up with nothing to show but self pity and a need for attention, a child genius pushed by the adults around him plus a arrogant politically incorrect male chauvinist motivational speaker are just fragments among a multitude of other significant to lesser characters throughout.
The nature of their tragedy equals romance and delight all in different unconventional ways that sprawl out into a narrative that demands attention. American life with a galaxy of stars interacting alongside a biblical edge throughout is best described as an unforgettable enduring drama that crescendos into a crashing finale putting the icing on the cake of this mosaic of misery.
