PEOPLE OUT THERE

by Aik Karapetian

synopsis

Jan is a young man of about 20 who lives with his grandfather in a dreary housing complex on the outskirts of town. He and his best friend Cracker just hang out smoking weed, occasionally making a little cash on the side through petty theft. But then one evening Jan meets and becomes enchanted by the beautiful, high-class Sabina, and his mundane life gets thrown for a loop. He takes a liking to the lifestyle of the golden, pampered kids he meets, and he longs to penetrate society’s upper echelons. The desire for love and a better life pulls him from his resignation and goads him to fight against the hopelessness of his situation.
