A young petty criminal, Lee, wakes in a seedy motel with a bullet in his side and a suitcase of stolen money, his memory hazy as to how he got there. Soon he meets Wild, a doctor who is escaping his own disastrous life, and the two men set out for the safety of the countryside.
Love can take you to the darkest places.
In this compelling re-imagining of the Orpheus story, Leela travels to an underworld of kidnapping, torture and despair in search of her lover, Mishka.
Leela is a mathematical genius who escaped her home town to study in Boston. From her first moment she hears the young Australian musician Mishka busking in a subway, his music grips her, and they quickly become lovers.
