“We’re a youth culture of hedonists, Scarlet. And we’ll drink, snort, love and laugh ourselves into nothingness.”=
Scarlet has never been one for moderation, or doing anything by halves in fact. 2014 is coming to an end, and a generation of disillusioned youth is awakening.
Set in the heart of Belfast, Scarlet, Deano and Lauryn find themselves in a restless limbo fuelled by increasing amounts of cocaine. The opportunity for hedonistic extravagance is everywhere in ever-evolving forms, and they are taking full advantage.
Then Scarlet finds her ultimate hit…Jamie Brennan. Their intoxicating affair takes them on a metaphysical journey of love, laughter and psychedelic discovery.
But all good things must come to an end, and their beautifully-crafted reality is threatened by the past, the truth and their own self-destruction. Will they realise who they are before it’s too late?
Tripping delves deep into a world defined by excess, pleasure and soul exploration. When more is never enough, how much are we willing to sacrifice?
