Summary
Mike is a sensitive narcoleptic who dreams of the mother who abandoned him. Scott is a wayward son of the mayor of Portland and the object of Mike's desire. Navigating a volatile world of junkies, thieves, and johns, Mike takes Scott on a quest from the grungy streets to the open highways of the Pacific Northwest, in search of an elusive place called "home". A stirring look at unrequited love and life at society's margins
