Based on Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Selby Jr.
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
In the center of the plot are several main characters who sacrifice everything for the sake of realizing their dreams, not noticing how they slide into the social bottom, becoming completely dependent on their destructive addictions, which gradually begin to destroy their lives. An elderly woman, Sarah, whose son is gradually becoming a drug addict, ready for a dose to commit any crimes, herself becomes a victim of illusions that deprive her of reason. Having become a victim of television propaganda and advertising miracle cures for weight loss, she becomes addicted to drugs. Trying to lose weight in order to look very slim and beautiful, hoping to get to the show with her beloved presenter, she does not notice how she gradually becomes dependent on diet pills, and increasing the dose every day she begins to gradually lose her mind.
The son of a woman, Harold, together with her friends Taylor and Marion, dream of becoming successful businessmen and selling home appliances. Their mutual friend Marion dreams of his own store, and the release of his clothing line. But the dreams of all young people are crushed to dust, and their drug addiction is to blame. After the showdown between police and drug dealers begins in the city, drugs almost completely disappear from the city streets, which leads to the appearance of a more expensive and low-quality product. Dose prices soar to heaven, and friends gradually spend all their money, overpaying hundreds of times for each dose. The guys get involved in the world of crime, which leads to terrible consequences, and the girl becomes a prostitute who agrees to everything for just one dose of drugs.
