A young heroin addict, Harley (Arielle Holmes) roams the streets of New York to panhandle and get her next fix, while her unstable boyfriend, Ilya (Caleb Landry Jones) drifts in and out of her life at random. Harley loves Ilya. He gives her life purpose, sets her passion ablaze. So when he asks her to prove her love by slitting her wrists, she obliges with only mild hesitation, perhaps because of her other all-consuming love: heroin.
Raised in both Queens and Manhattan, brothers Josh Safdie and Ben Safdie began making movies at a young age, inspired by their film-enthusiast father. They attended Boston University, where they co-founded with Alex Kalman, the creative collective Red Bucket Films. The turmoil of their parents’ divorce, became an inspiration for later work.
