Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Parts I and II, the friendship between hustlers Mike and Scott on the streets dreamily unfolds in Van Sant’s 1990s classic dramatic independent film. The tough life of living on the streets of Portland, consuming drugs, and selling their bodies has different meanings for Mike and Scott. Mike, gay and narcoleptic, is in constant search of the mother who abandoned him while Scott, not gay and rebellious, is just biding his time before receiving his inheritance. Their personal journey begins as they leave Portland for Idaho, and eventually Italy, in search of Mike’s mom.
