Luke Thomas has a regular poor life. His girlfriend has just left him and his job has come to an abrupt end. He now has about two months worth of money and nothing to live for in the poorest part of town. He's lost everything so fast he can barely bring himself to care about improving his situation. God knows if you start out poor you end poor in this city, and his end was going to be coming quickly. As quickly as the concrete was rushing towards him.
