Gino wants to end up with his lonesome pilgrimage and is tired of being a rolling stone of its kind. He has created nothing and has nothing in his possession. He comes to the point to admit that he is no one roaming the roads. He sees that only adventure lust cannot earn the peace of mind for him.
Withdrawn and enclosed in his own shell he feels abandoned, depressed and tired of conflicts. He comes to the point that he needs to change his attitude, morality and way of thinking. He needs to get out of the swamp of solitude and recover from devastating depression. At this state he realizes that he reaches the dead end and search for the ways out could be the last chance for him to overcome this heavy burden.
Being two times divorced the court took everything what he had ever possessed. Once a promising businessman his career was ruined as he beat up his boss – former father-in-law who reproached ironically throwing that he bought him as his daughter’s “toy”. Some time of a drinking spree almost threw him into alcoholism but a lucky lottery winning helped him to escape from the turmoil of triviality by letting him to see the world. His vagabond lifestyle, constantly repeated process of adjustment to different cultures turns him into a “lone wolf”. His relations with people around him fall apart due to the loss of senses of compromise, understanding and even honesty. Even this escape from the triviality turned to be nerve-racking and tiring and left him with nothing but emotional scars and distress.
Years of dissolute lifestyle as a highly paid call girl turned her into an insensitive vulture. She has to hide her true passionate nature and play the game her clients pay for. Inside she feels that it is impossible to endlessly live this way. She longs for crucial changes.
She begins to realize that she is tired of being so artificial and deceptive; that this world she lives in gave her nothing but constant humiliation and frustration drowning deeper and deeper into the pit of dirt and immorality. She cannot endure it anymore and the nostalgia for a true love she once felt turns out to be the only drive to get her life back.
Several unsuccessful marriages, infertility to have a child and need for money threw her into prostitution as a casino call girl. Her clients are very rich and powerful people. However, Gino has been her first flame she cannot forget since school. He has always been the one she could not own. She is passionate but prudently hides it everywhere. Only when she is alone, her eyes begin to fill with tears while flipping the pages of her school album. She sometimes visits the church and donates “fat” checks to orphanages. Memories is the only thing she lives with and it actually feeds her ego. She several times tried to break up with her lifestyle but the last for money used to always take over. She even manages to save up for the modest house which she bought in the vicinity of her school where she hopes to spend the rest of her life away from glimmering neon razzle-dazzle city lures. This way she wants to burry her memories of being raped in her teens.
His hesitant, indecisive nature made him a loser in his quest for artistic style. Constant lack of money drives him to frustration and misery. Only thing he can afford is exchange his paintings for drugs. Addiction becomes so strong that he cannot account for his actions most of the time. Not needed, abandoned by everyone he spends years going down the stream to the point that the suicide seems the only way out. Being a step away from death his cowardice makes him open his eyes.
Completely abandoned, blackmailed and humiliated, weak and distressed his existence becomes worthless. His talent is buried under the piles of canvases with distorted and colorless paintings. The luck of failed suicide gives him one last chance of a turning point to redeem himself and crawl out of miserable loneliness.
Douglas has always wanted recognition as an artist but his mediocre paintings did not sell. Only thing he could do with them was exchanging them for food and mostly drugs. He served term in prison for drugs when his girlfriend set him up. Having been released from prison his timidity and addiction turned him into a snitch. Unbearable situation as a flow of misfortunes one day arrives him to a suicide decision but accidentally he fails. This was the first beam of light at the end of the tunnel. Doug’s addiction to drugs is not and has never been a wishful drive. Being a teenager he tried to recover from his timidness serving as a soldier during the civil war but he got hooked on drugs instead
