Freelance journalist Dorlores Gunn is a night crawler armed with a ruthless curiosity and a knack for self-preservation. With her drugged-out TV crew in tow, she scours the night city for saleable stories: violent death in the street is just a service industry providing her next clip, and every victim is a potential actor. Criss-crossing her path is Eli, a bike courier who travels with ease through the clogged arteries of the urban core and rides the periphery when the media pounces on a suspected serial killer. Both become entangled in the police investigation when Dolores becomes the target of a stalker and Eli is hunted by a rogue SUV. In the struggle to survive, neither can be sure if they own the streets or the streets own them.
