Description: An encounter with a fortune-teller leads businessman Edmond to confront the emptiness of his life and marriage. Appalled, he flees into the vortex of the city's underbelly, plummeting into a free fall he mistakes for liberation. To Edmond's surprise, it's dark outside: hookers charge, pimps are violent, and the guy on the corner is a conman. Edmond is robbed, beaten and left bewildered. But there's a strange comfort at the bottom. Exhilarated by a random act of violence, Edmond picks up a waitress, Glenna, but their riotous sex play leads first to conflict and then to murder. With nothing to lose but his liberty, Edmond spirals further out of control, towards prison, disintegration and a very brutal redemption.
