Americans have been taken hostage in Iran, but in the seedy dying discos of 1979 Los Angeles, a naive young immigrant is hostage to his own American dream. Houshang, or "Hank" when he's pretending to be Italian to get past prejudiced doormen, sees the disco club circuit as his ticket to a better life. Houshang's ambition leads to a chaotic and desperate journey of lost identity, forbidden love and betrayal.
