Ben's life is tanking and the final straw is when he gets fired. Already admittedly an alcoholic, he drives to Las Vegas to drink himself to death with the last of his money. He meets a hooker named Sera who's lonely and asks him to move in with her. He does - on the condition she never asks him to stop drinking. She doesn't. They never have sex because he's always too drunk. She kicks him out when she finds him with another hooker in her apartment.
