Guy has spent most of his life fighting his inner demons, the dark places in his mind. He's never really found love nor did he believe it existed until one night where he came across a girl who wasn't repulsed by the smell of his cigarettes and the alcohol on his breath. She sees something in him that no one ever has before... hope. Her father disapproves of the relationship they begin, saying he's worthless but it's nothing he hasn't heard from his own father. Girl tries her best to 'fix' Guy, begging him to change his ways. Guy does his best but it never seems enough and the pull of alcohol is too great. He continues his destructive ways but he's dragging Girl down with him as she soon finds herself following his footsteps. He hates what he's doing to her but he can't stop. He's a human time-bomb.
