Mixed up with drugs and kicked out of school, 16-year-old Max is shipped off by his parents from his small Oregon hometown to Los Angeles for an in-patient drug rehab program. He arrives a few days early to stay with his Aunt Mercedes, a single mom and mortgage broker raking it in during the 2004 California real estate boom. With four days left of freedom, Max is determined to get out of his aunt’s apartment and live it up one last time in Hollywood. But Max isn’t the only one looking to escape. His Aunt Mercedes’s job is at stake due to illegal practices, and she has recently turned back to cocaine, which nearly killed her in her early-twenties. As their lives spiral out of control, a night in West Hollywood may just lead to their salvation.
