Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A Toronto-based filmmaker unwittingly becomes a character in his own script after waking up in the most dangerous neighborhood in New Orleans with a charismatic stranger whom he never remembers meeting. Traveling Canadian Christian was traveling through America with three close friends in hopes of getting over the pain of a recent break-up and rekindling his creative fire. The primary purpose of Christian's trip to New Orleans was to experience the side of the city that inspired the likes of Tennessee Williams and filter the wisdom he gathered into a moody autobiographical mood piece replete with intrigue, danger, and lust. Over the course of one lost weekend, however, Christian got lost in a sordid mix of booze and beads. But Christian's new friend Lucky is convinced that his new acquaintance if capable of penning something far more interesting. If Lucky could only convince Christian to write something that relates more closely to the filmmaker's current reality, then perhaps Christian's latest project would have some true substance.
