NOWHERE’s weblike narrative charts a day in the hilarious and tragic life of Dark Smith (James Duval), a gorgeous, alienated 18-year-old obsessed with the End of the World and finding his one true and lasting love. The object of his affection, Mel (Rachel True), feels for him deeply but can’t commit herself to any one person or gender, splitting her time between Dark and her curvaceous, acid-tongued girlfriend, Lucifer  (Kathleen Robertson). Dark, meanwhile, becomes enthralled by the beauteous Montgomery (Nathan Bexton), literally a vision to behold beneath the golden California sun.

NOWHERE stars an ensemble cast from the period including Guillermo Diaz, Alan Boyce, Jeremy Jordan, Chiara Mastroianni, Debi Mazar, Christina Applegate, Scott Cain, Heather Graham, Ryan Phillippe, Traci Lords, Shannen Doherty, Rose McGowan, Jaason Simmons and Jordan Ladd to name a few.
