Manny introduces Virgil to Ruby, a junkie and prostitute, and Virgil falls instantly in love.


Reviews

"Powerful, terrific! Manages to approach the tense naturalism displayed in Billy Bob Thornton's Sling Blade and Ken Loach's My Name Is Joe" -Time Out New York

"Honest, searing. A striking film across the board." -Roughcut.com 

"Its milieu is authentic, the supporting performances are frighteningly believable, and Clint Jordan creates a tragic hero of heartbreaking nobility." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer
