  • Those druggies are so full of it...

A look at life in surburbia. Our hero is a teenage boy who finds the body of a pal who hanged himself. He decides to let the adults discover the body for themselves. However, the dead boy was the local drug merchant, and some of his customers come looking for our lad, thinking he knows where the stash is. In the mean time, the various parents are immersed in their own sex lives, and deal with the death as just another inconvenience.
