Julius (director/co-writer Marty Sader), a counselor working at a mental hospital, succumbs to drugs after losing his job, his girlfriend, and his adoptive father-a series of blows that sends him into a rapid downward spiral and leads him to experiment with crystal meth. The bracing drama then chronicles Julius' disturbing journey from a well-adjusted young man to a shattered, desperate addict. Laura Keys, Josh Taback co-star. 98 min. Soundtrack: English; audio commentary.
