Full 86’d Synopsis:
Max is a Koch-era NYC psycho-naut trying to make it home before his mouthful of mescaline kicks in. He decides to stop in at an all night deli for a quick sandwich. After numerous order delays and full-on trip stampeding into his psyche, he is made to pay witness to the colorful cast of lower east side weirdos, visualizing their stories through his newly altered lens: A times square dominatrix meets up with one of her regulars to reveal an answering message left by his wife. Two punks discuss an ultimatum as one reveals his connection to a pistol found in a drug bust. A recording engineer convinces an aspiring singer to re-record a destroyed vocal take from a canonic 80s group and attempts to pass it off as the original.
