If “en vino veritas,” then certainly in heroin —there is love.

A beautifully constructed story of pathetic characters, sick dark humor, immensely dysfunctional relationships, and yes, inspiration and hope.

Clay Elliott has everything he ever wanted and more; a college degree, a beautiful house in Seattle, an expensive car, plenty of money in the bank and most of all, Clay has a super-sized drug habit. His apathy for life perpetuates his addiction, and he allows it to consume him and thrive. He spends his every day following his only passion, which happens to be heroin.

Scoring dope becomes difficult for Clay when IRIS (the Islamic Radical Idiot Squad) terrorists execute a coordinated attack on Seattle. Three churches are under siege and the parishioners are held hostage.
Clay’s small world of using drugs is interrupted when a curfew is implemented in Seattle due to the terrorist’s attacks.
With the city locked down, Clay watches the television reports about IRIS and searches his house for stashed drugs. His only distraction is a welcome daily phone call from his sister, Casey.

Casey is a sassy, confident Seattle Police Officer and is the voice of reason for Clay. She’s eight and a half months pregnant with her first child, and even with Seattle under siege, she remains hopeful.
Throughout the terror attacks, Clay begins to question his life and his place in the world. He has a deep desire to find his “true passion” in life.

A baby, a bombing, and a bitch session with himself (brought on by cocaine induced psychosis) may lead Clay to rehab, but he has to first get past his philosophy on drug treatment, which is: rehab is for losers.
