Abstract:

"In Cherry Smoke, Fish, a club fighter who has spent most of his life in and out of jail, is a ticking time bomb. Despite his constant struggle to change and lead a decent life, his violent outbursts and hair trigger temper result in countless confrontations with the law. His girlfriend, Cherry, a runaway fortune teller who has been on her own since the age of ten, longs for a more simple life like the one Fish's brother, Duffy, and Duffy's wife, Bug, lead. When Cherry becomes pregnant, Fish fears he will become the type of father that his dad was to him ... unavailable and violent. The all consuming love Fish and Cherry have for each other is put to the test in this poetic and visceral drama."--Publisher's website.
