Alcoholic Ben Sanderson loses his Hollywood job, takes his severance pay, and drives to Vegas with the mission of drinking himself to death. On the Strip he encounters working girl Sera: she falls for him, and he moves in with her, at the same time extracting a solemn promise that she will not try to divert him from his chosen path of self-annihilation.
