This is the story of a young man's circuitous journey from drug dependency and petty crime to a life redeemed by this startling discovery of compassion. The story is set in the drug subculture of the 1970's, and it's protagonist -- a young man in his twenties (Crudup) -- spends his days high on drugs, stealing, or scamming a quick buck. On the other hand, he is also driven by an overwhelming desire to help those around him, but he repeatedly fails.

Almost by a miracle, redemption does come to him. Now, whoever he meets, his attempts to prove his worth are either oddly touching, futile or often both.
