Dick Jones


Dick Jones contemplates the meaning of growing older in America. It explores the inevitability of age through the eyes of a black man entering his sixties.

From the black streets of Harlem to the bright desert of Las Vegas Nevada, his desire for success is overshadowed by his fear of aging and his life long lust for young women. Finding himself living in Las Vegas is both a blessing and a curse as Las Vegas proves to be a world where young woman who are willing to satisfy his sexual obsessions are all too plentiful, but come with a price.

Believing that young women are the fountain of youth, he searches for his one true love on the underbelly of sin city. Each adventure is a mirror reflecting his own soul, his insanity and his failure to find true love. The cost of each adventure in money, time, trepidations and respect for human values is dear, but each part of the journey breeds the next step, which Dick can never resist taking.
