A young woman follows her rich, egocentric lover to Vegas, and life turns into a bizarre hall of mirrors. The voyeuristic Carlton, who conducts blockbuster, writing seminars in a glitzy hotel on the Strip”, orchestrates a workshop drama, choosing Kore and the brooding class pariah, Nev, to role play. The improvised lover’s quarrel erupts in violence, and Carlton bans the two from the group. To arouse his jealousy, Kore heads for the mountains with Nev where he hides stolen ammo in abandoned mining caves in a plan to blow up the strip and the government that sent him to Nam. When the tough, in-your-face”, anti-war activist and the Vietnam vet, haunted by his involvement in the death of a woman he loved, face each other alone in the wilderness, their conflicting needs explode into a nightmarish battle, and Kore must choose between the barren, rocky road of love for the sorrowing Nev or the easy life with Carlton in return for slavish idolatry.
