This film is interesting in that it 22-year old writer/producer/director Caleb Lindsey shot it on Super-16mm film on a $27,000 budget. He also did not use professional actors. The film loosely chronicles the daily, often aimless, existence a group of X-generation men. The main character is Alex, a young man who recently left his mom and her boyfriend to live with his father, two brothers, Patrick and Frankie, and his friends Chris and Mark. Patrick and his pal David dream of becoming famous musicians. Unfortunately they have no talent and must suffice with playing low-paying engagements. When not practicing, the two cruise around trying (unsuccessfully) to seduce women. Alex and his friends like to joyride in "borrowed" cars.
