She reads curled up in the sewer drain by Venice Beach under the shot-out flashing Chevron light, yet still fights at the drop of a dime, cuts johns who say the wrong thing, and steals anything she can get her hands on. Her girlfriend, Jackson, a young African-American street worker who lives in the back of a junk yard totaled limo, dreams of becoming a writer and receives daily guidan.
