Life in the fast lane can be seductive, thrilling, intoxicating...but when night falls and the brakes fail, sooner or later you're gonna crash. Oscar® nominee* James Woods is "mesmeric" (Variety), and Sean Young delivers a "sensitive performance" (Los Angeles Times) in this gripping story of a loving couple's descent into the nightmare of cocaine addiction. Lenny Brown (Woods) is finally on a roll: Recruited to sell real estate to the rich in L.A., he's an overnight success. Suddenly, he and his wife (Young) have a beautiful home, fancy cars and a ready supply of cash. But when Lenny's fortunes suddenly change, he decides he needs a "boost" to regain his edge. What he gets instead is an all-consuming need that drags him and his wife into a cycle of shame, denial and anguish.
