Angelino, known as Lino, was born and raised in DMC (Dark Meat City), a hangout for criminals and destitutes, where he lives with his best friend, the skull-headed Vinz in a run-down apartment. Together with the silly and timid Willy, the 3 pass time lazily with no bright future prospects. One day, after getting into a traffic accident, Lino starts to have odd hallucinations in which he is chased by strange men in black suits and armed police. Eventually, his life gets into a desperate situation.
