Winner! Los Angeles Weekly Award
Charles, a divorced ex-doctor, and Lily, a shy new arrival to Los Angeles from Connecticut, find themselves spending Christmas together in Ensenada, Mexico. They end up in a room at The Flamingo Motel with only one bed. He sits. She stands. After more awkward attempts to connect, they head to a bar, becoming a welcome distraction for bored, dissolute Richard and Cici. He's a cocaine dealer. She's a manicurist. And they set about making Charles and Lily part of a memorable evening's entertainment.
