"There are two times in my life when, while completely sober, I have laughed to the point of simultaneous asphyxiation and urination. The first was in 1999 seeing the South Park movie in theatres, during the song 'Uncle Fucker.' The second was in 2001, while watching Katie Finneran in Noises Off on Broadway.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
