Three stories reflecting California’s intense pressures and addictions: Sparkling Arabella, high on crystal meth astride a Harley, ascends into the stars. Will she find grace at last? A boy, a girl, and a dog meet in the Viper Room, looking for love on the eve of a devastating Los Angeles earthquake. And Silicon Valley, once filled with apricot orchards, becomes a dream killer for a workaholic on the verge of cashing in.
