Small Town Ecstasy
This documentary is about Scott, a 40-year-old divorced father, his four children Job (20), Craig (18), Heather (15) and Sam (13).
Scott has been introduced to the rave scene, and Ecstasy, by Craig. The two of them go out on the weekends, with some of Craigs friends, and stay up all night, dancing in a drug-fueled trance. Occasionally, they bring Heather and Sam along for the ride. While some Dad’s might fancy a trip to the park or to a game, Scott prefers the drug soaked night life for his precious little ones. Hes also aware of his role as a protector.
The second half revolves around his legal problems, the extremely limited, supervised custody hes grudgingly granted, and the tear-stained faces of his children, who want to see him as much as he wants to see them. Or maybe they just want to do more drugs with pop, who knows. Regardless, it makes for one of the most fascinating and controversial documentaries out there.
