Charlie is a thirtysomething high school teacher and failed writer in the midst of an epic emotional breakdown. In a desperate attempt to make sense of it all, Charlie reconnects with his old high school buddies; Luke a handsome movie star, and Danny a salacious rich boy. The three friends have an obligatory night out on the town where they meet Bonnie, beautiful and intent on hooking up with Luke; Eli, charming and underaged and Chu, Bonnie’s friend who becomes reluctantly caught up in the shenanigans. These lost souls somehow find themselves for one night, in a house atop the Hollywood hills, sequestered by their reluctance or fear to face reality. But with a little help from old friends, strangers, alcohol and some garden-variety hallucinogens, everything begins to make some sense.
"Linsanity" producer Brian Yang (“Hawaii 5-O"), stars, along with Rex Lee (“Entourage”), Emily Chang (“NCIS”), and Eddie Mui (“Gone in 60 Seconds”).
