Note: This contains depictions of drug use and is not suitable for persons under the age of 18.

When Ben arrives in town he hooks up with his best friend from times past. Quickly picking up where he left off, he resumes his old drug habits, and is introduced to his buddy's new circle of friends, namely his old mate's on/off girlfriend, as well as an amiable sugar daddy. Eager not to be left out, Ben moves in on his buddy's territory, and as the love/hate relationship between the two escalates, the circle begins to disintegrate spectacularly.

This film was redacted from 2002's .OFF.

"In the most startling sequence, the house-proud Graham, completely fucked up, brings a new dimension to kitchen-sink drama in an epic struggle to do the dishes."

Bill Gosden, New Zealand International Film Festival (2002)
