Dayton, Ohio. In a darkened alley behind a downtown strip-club, an old man is beaten to death by a group known locally as The Stripper Mafia. Jess watches from the sidelines, appalled but unable to make herself intervene. Jess is an attractiveMoreDayton, Ohio. In a darkened alley behind a downtown strip-club, an old man is beaten to death by a group known locally as The Stripper Mafia.

Jess watches from the sidelines, appalled but unable to make herself intervene. Jess is an attractive woman. Not beautiful exactly, but striking. She stands out. People notice her, are drawn to her. Jess moves through the world, through life, like a whirlwind, and each person she touches, no matter how random, is affected. Its my fault, she thinks. I killed this guy. Believing shes responsible for Old Bills death, Jess leaves the gritty strip scene of Dayton behind and heads west, her Mitsubishi Spyder eating up the miles.

No hotels, no rest. Jesss journey westward isnt just an escape from her past. For Jess, life has always been a search to find her place in the world. And now, through a chance meeting, she believes shes found it in a man shes only met once. Freezing rain pelts the windshield. Travel isnt new to Jess. In the early 2000s, she travelled the country with a top-tier boy-band. Groupie, confidante, lover, Jess had it all.

Until she had enough and moved on. Moving on was Jesss usual stock and trade, even in jobs. Model, drug dealer, artist, stripper. Jess treated them all with professionalism and a willingness to accept exactly who she was - no excuses, no regrets. The car swerves... Jess looks around slowly. Lights of emergency vehicles revolve and flicker. Her head feels as if its in a fishbowl, her vision distorted, cloudy- sound muffled.

Its all a dream, she thinks. It has to be a dream. Shell get up, restart the car, be on her way. Life will go on. Wont it? A life well-lived flashes before her eyes.
