Brilliant, native-American protest poet, Kore, follows her egocentric lover to Vegas where he holds blockbuster-writing seminars in a glitzy hotel on the qStripq. The voyeuristic Carlton improvises a lover's quarrel in his workshop, choosing Kore and Nev, the brooding class pariah, secretly back from Vietnam, to roleplay.
