On the run from his boss, drug dealer Ricardo Papa takes up residence at a run-down hotel in San Francisco's impoverished Tenderloin District. There he befriends Margo, an aspiring artist desperate for a change, her 13-year-old daughter Lattie, and elderly (and possibly rich) clairvoyant Harrison. But when his employer tracks him down, Ricardo must choose between saving himself and betraying his new friends. Octavio Gómez Berríos, Martin Landau, Melora Walters star in this life-affirming drama. 95 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
