Back when they were students, just like everybody else, Ray Ash and Simon Darcourt had dreams about what they`d do when they grew up. In both their cases, it was to be rock stars. Fifteen years later, their mid-thirties are bearing down fast, and just like everybody else, they`re having to accept the less glamorous hands reality has dealt them. Nervous new father Ray takes refuge from his responsibilities by living a virtual existence in online games. People say he needs to grow up, but everybody has to find their own way of coping. For some it`s affairs, for others it`s the bottle, and for Simon it`s serial murder, mass slaughter and professional assassination.
