Quirky drama from director Gus van Zant, loosely based on Shakespeare’s ‘Henry IV, Part 1’. The story revolves around two Seattle street hustlers played by River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves. Mike (Phoenix) is a sensitive, gay narcoleptic who dreams of his long-lost mother during his frequent unplanned naps, while Scott (Reeves) is the self-avowedly straight rebellious son of the mayor of Portland. Together, the two friends embark on a journey to find Mike’s mother.
