The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
The word "heroin" is never actually said by any of the characters in the film.
I'm walkin' across the stage! And you should see my Harry on television. We're giving the prizes away.

When the characters take Heroin, either injected or snorted, the sequence showing their eyes dilating is inaccurate. Opiates produce a constricting of the pupil. However, the dilating is correct when the characters are using Ecstasy and Cocaine.
The closing credits feature pictures of Coney Island Amusement Park, and during the credits, the sounds of the shore can be heard.
