As We Get Older


The story of Jack, a typical teen-age boy, left alone for a week-end in his empty house. His parents leave him cash and a note telling them they will miss him. As he looks at the cash, he sees weed. After he gets high on pot. He goes to a party. The party is one of lost teens drinking to excess. Like Fitzgerald's generation,these are aching souls seeking the company of their decadent friends, to escape boredom and loneliness. Jack represents a generation trying to escape the vacuous confused world they lead by partying to exccess and waking up to face nothing but loneliness.
