Abstract

Wes is an ambulance driver in Los Angeles. He's in his early thirties and has been an EMT for a decade. Recently, Wes and his fiancee Debbie parted ways, and Wes finds that his addiction to alcohol, which contributed to the end of their relationship, is escalating. He struggles with his relationships with new women and can't reconcile the constant death and mayhem he witnesses at work in any meaningful way.
