Synopsis

The picture painted is grim, even if its canvas is filled with sunny vistas, manicured lawns and crystalline pools. Caught in a dead-end, post-high-school void, the youth of Little Athens are a strange assortment of ragtag characters, constantly at each other's throats. A series of stories overlap over a twenty-four-hour period. Heather is a neurotic EMS worker convinced that her boyfriend, a handsome young cop, is cheating on her. Jimmy, wide-eyed and tousle-haired, delivers pizza, works in a gym and deals drugs to get out from under a sizeable debt. Two slacker roommates, Corey and Pedro clean pools, but their meager earnings aren't enough to pay the rent. And then there is Jessica, living on her mother's couch, who learns that her boyfriend is out to get her for giving him an STD.
