Marcus seems to have the perfect marriage, but a surprise visit from his long-absent sister-in-law, Louise, threatens to disrupt his serene home. Louise brings along her adopted daughter, who professes her love for Marcus's son. The news forces Marcus to share his own long-buried secret in this film adaptation of Donald Gray's stage play - a secret that may destroy his family.
Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
This psychedelic tour of life after death is seen entirely from the point of view of Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), a young American drug dealer and addict living in Tokyo with his prostitute sister, Linda (Paz de la Huerta).
