Packer's luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellishas he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer's perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode. official plot version from
