“Don’t you wanna be the life of the party?!”
In this steamy 1920’s prohibition tale of love, lust, and betrayal, lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie’s wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so is Burrs’ jealousy, which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions abandoned, Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who’s been shot?
