Synopsis

Once he hit 40, Pete was peaking. Finally had his own basement apartment and a job training babes at the gym. That’s when his mom moved back to town. A train wreck, she threatened everything he worked for.

Getting her into an old folks only made things harder, shuffling between two worlds that started to merge. Lucky she has lots of pills. A new source of income, they helped him curb the pain, too. If only he knew what the colours meant.

With a cast of characters that includes Fraker, the Hitler-moustached gym owner; Tommy, the hippie down the hall; and his nihilistic sister Melody, Pete better get it together or he’ll never have anyone to take care of him when he’s old.
