Mr. Kaellis employs crystalline perception and a strong voice in this intense and compelling chronicle of his nine year journey through the twilight glitz that is the Las Vegas casino subculture. This atmospheric narrative focuses on Vegas, boxing, violence, sex, love, grief, narcotics and the alchemy of transforming pain into empathy.
