Young, good-looking, newly graduated from art college: Chase has everything going for him. Okay, so he’s back in Vegas. But he plans to leave it behind, hook up with his girlfriend in California, and become an artist. Or at least, that’s what he thinks…Las Vegas is a city of bright lights and dreams-come-true. But for Chase it’s the scene of nightmares. When he finds out that his ever-entrancing first love, Michele, is working as a call-girl at an escort service, he also discovers that old feelings die hard. He has to be near her, to protect her, and so, recklessly, he agrees to become her driver – delivering her and the other girls to the condos and hotel suites of men all over town. At first they’re on top of the world and it seems they’re going to win big. But as the stakes are raised, things quickly spiral out of control. Everything around him screams run. And, except for Michele and the tragic secret that haunts them both, he might. But she’s like a drug to him, his love for her compelling him to stay, even in the face of impending danger.Sexy, soulful and charging towards its nightmarish conclusion, “The Delivery Man” is a love story for our times.
