Jake Gregory (Steve Railsback) has it all. Successful architect in early 1980s America, beautiful artist-wife Lillian (Pamela Sue Martin) at his side, the young couple seem to have everything they could wish for. But Jake's partying soon leads him into the world of cocaine use and addiction to freebasing swifly follows. Keeping him supplied is suave and debonair Sidney (Ian McShane), a cold-hearted cynic with no qualms about continuing to sell narcotics to the truly enslaved. Only Lillian, armed with nothing more than love and respect can possibly save her husband from his self-imposed drug torment. But will Jake acknowledge his problem?
