A bunch of Portland drunks are on a mission... and this time it's war. Their dark and perilous campaign ceaselessly picks up speed until it takes on a runaway life of its own, transformed by a desperate momentum: once paralyzed rage burns down a bookstore (Powells) and hijacks a commuter train; isolation and fear forces bloody encounters with skinheads, crips, and postal workers. A history of long-disappointed desire becomes a symphony of lurid and hilarious catharsis, building relentlessly to a dizzying conclusion.
