Synopsis

Brandon is a handsome and successful New Yorker who spends his days and nights navigating a reckless terrain of sexual obsession, on an inevitable path towards self-destruction. Surrounded by a constant assault of beauty, glamor and desire, he finds himself at a crossroads when his wayward sister, Sissy, comes to crash at his sleek Manhattan apartment. As Brandon struggles to deal with his life of excess, his constant quest for numbness is an escape from both his present and his past.
