Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this darkly comic crime drama, three young strangers meet each other on Venice Beach and end up trying to rob an empty house. Seb is a small-time crook running from a New York gangster; Linus is a Boston stockbroker who has come to California to escape the boredom of his oppressive job, and Spoon is confused. He was from Chicago, but recently woke up to find himself hanging from a tree near the beach; he has no idea what happened or why. The story then delves briefly into their past lives before returning to the present. It is Seb who suggests they rob the empty beach house. Soon it's discovered that Linus is really a renegade G-man and that Seb's lover has teamed up with Frank, gangster, and is flying out to LA to get him. More mayhem ensues as the story twists and turns towards its bizarre conclusion.
