The last week of a massive international tour and rock star Paul, is at the height of his fame. Everybody knows his name. Whatever he wants he can have. He can screw anybody he wants to. He can buy anything he desires. He can eat anything. Drink anything. Smoke anything. Go anywhere.

As the inevitability of the end of the road looms closer, and a return home becomes a reality, for Paul, the music is starting to jar.
