Plot – Spoilers:
Harry loves his mom Sara. Especially when he’s pawning her tv set to fund his drug habits. He’s also in love with Marion, fellow junkie and the disconnected daughter of a wealthy businessman.

Marion’s allowance from her father is controlled by a therapist, whom she fucks when desperate for cash. Harry meanwhile has grand plans of being a successful seller with buddy Tyrone, whose connections seem promising.

Sara sits at home alone most of the time, addicted to a game show that glorifies winners and weight-loss. When she receives an invitation to be a part of the show, she gets obsessed with losing weight to fit into her favorite red dress.

And then life spirals for all four of them, with the spiral of Harry’s world running parallel to his mother’s more socially acceptable addiction.
