Simon, the sole survivor of a plane crash, is barely clinging to life in the hospital. He arrived earlier that day from Venezuela with sixty bags of heroin in his intestines, hoping to make amends for an irredeemable action. Julie, one of the nurses who watches over him in intensive care, has a serious crisis of conscience. Her fiancé Stephen is suffering from leukemia that could be treated with a blood transfusion, but because they are Jehovah’s Witnesses, it’s prohibited by their religion. That same day, Raymond, a casino bartender in his sixties, offers to take his unhappily married mistress Louise, also in her sixties, on a holiday in the South, but she doesn’t want to leave her husband. Martin and his wife Evelyn are due to leave on a vacation as well, but on the eve of their departure, they drown their disappointments in booze and gambling at the casino. The destinies of all of these people will soon cross.
