John (Jonathan Wade-Drahos) finds himself regaining consciousness in a public bathroom at The Red Party. As he contemplates his image in the mirror, he flashes back to when he was a small-town Illinois cop, whose captain suggests a move to Los Angeles, in order for John to discover a more sympathetic environment. John packs up his truck, drives cross country, and moves in with his cousin Tad (Daniel Kucan), who's now living with his ex, Gill (Brian Lane Green) and Tad's new boy toy, DJ Julian (Darryl Stephens). Tad is making a documentary about the gay circuit and the party culture, while Julian is a circuit party DJ. Gill invites John to a Hollywood Hills party, where John meets Hector (Andre Khabbazi), a male prostitute, who's battling his personal demons of looks and age. John and Hector form a budding friendship as John experiences a downward spiral into the sex and drug-fueled world of the gay circuit party scene. Will John survive?Written by

Early in the film, John (Jonathan Wade-Drahos) drives into Los Angeles/West Hollywood, and as he drives, he passes by several iconic gay bars, Rage at 8911 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; Mother Load at 8944 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; Spike (now CLOSED) at 7746 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; and Mickey's 8857 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069; in that order. However, it would be impossible to drive by those bars in that order, without changing direction at least three times. See more »
Dirk Shafer, Playgirl's man of the year a few years back has put together a little bit of heaven & hell in this nugget of gay club-life in the city of angels. Although the acting is only mediocre, the direction, script, and overall film is very good. Dirk uses just the right amount of music, drugs, sex, exploitation, and beefcake to hit the nail on the head. The story revolves around a smalltown Illinois former cop named John who moves to L.A. & discovers sex, drugs, and techno. What's also interesting is the supporting cast of William Katt, JM J. Bullock, Nancy Allen, andPaul Lekakis. The music is great as well with new cuts from Taylor Dayne, Lonnie Gordon, and a slow remake of E.G. Daily's Love in the Shadows. For those that love the circuit, for those now out of the circuit, and for those who are oblivious to the circuit, watch and learn.
