In 1996 Alig rvas anested for the muder of his friend mj drug, dealer Angel Melendez, md is rurrently seming a 10 to 20 yea rentence for manslaughter It's a story of excess md hedonisnr, shaking off the inhibitions of society to ceate one of the most outlandish"club r.una, in A.ari.* history And the film smartly refuses to become a_preachy treatise on drug excess, opting iretead to merely report the ^lying events with style, hmour and a cast of astonishingly interesting "chaicters", *ost seem to'be "t vilious Points out of sheer self-interest (md self-promotion).
