Jamie Conway is an aspiring writer who leaves his home town in Kansas for the dynamic cityscape of Manhattan in an attempt to fuel his career and inform his writing experience. But the seductive side of life gets under his skin. The party culture enlivens his nights with hedonistic joy as he surfs a wave of excess that deadens his pain and wires his senses. In his charge to live life to the absolute limit, Jamie alienates his friends and family and risks losing everything.
