Hangs Over All



            ...... as they fight to escape the fatalist snarl of bad luck and bad choices that has ensnared them within a world of eternal night ; a world within which "tomorrow" is a concept as unattainable as it is irresistible. It's a question that leads adulterous couples to murder rich and cuckolded husbands, that teases lifetime payoffs to heists and capers forever destined to go wrong, that fuels star-crossed lovers on frantic, road-bound breakouts from The City and it's cataract of rain and ruin that hangs over all.
