Julia, 40, is an alcoholic. She is a
manipulative, unreliable, compulsive liar, all strung out
beneath her still flamboyant exterior. Between shots of
vodka and one-night stands, Julia gets by on nickel-and-dime
jobs. Increasingly lonely, the only consideration she
receives comes from her friend Mitch, who tries to help her.
But she shrugs him off, as her alcohol-induced confusion
daily reinforces her sense that life has dealt her a losing
hand and that she is not to blame for the mess she has made
Glimpsing imminent perdition, and after a chance encounter
with Elena, a Mexican woman, Julia convinces herself – as
much in panic and despair as for financial gain – to commit
a violent act.
As the story unfolds, Julia's journey becomes a headlong
flight on a collision course, but somehow she makes the
choice of life over death.
