Kraycheck, an angry young exiled haole, a small-time drug peddler and self-proclaimed student of the human condition, meets the disillusioned Dead Boys at the berm on Beachton beach to conduct a drug deal. Beachton, a paved-over polluted California beach, is central to this story set in the mid 1970’s.
