When smalltown boy Michael Alig (Macaulay Culkin) moves to New York he meets James St. James (Seth Green). In awe of this larger-than-life character and his decadent lifestyle, Alig determines to learn all he can from St. James, and aspires to be even more fabulous.
Soon his dream becomes a glittering reality. With his increasingly outrageous behaviour, and the wild antics of his infamous 'Club Kids', the charismatic Alig becomes the number one promoter in clubland and a media celebrity. Before long, however, the hedonistic parties and drug-fuelled existence take their toll. In a last ditch attempt to recapture the spirit of excess Alig makes one final outrageous gesture. But can he get away with murder?
This unbelievable but true story of the man who reinvented New York nightlife in the early '90s is a fascinating and outrageous expose of good times-turned-sour featuring brilliant performances from Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green as you've never seen them before.
