Lead Us Into Temptation

Synopsis:
Tell me how you're going to sacrifice your life for the human race?' asks groupie Helena of Jackie, the drug-addled popular-music icon whom she takes for the son of God. as Jackie sinks into heroin-induced solipsism, his manager, Barbara, manoeuvres him between promotional engagements. a money-grabbing suit, Barbara spends her time chopping into an increasingly huge mountain of cocaine. Though she decries the influence of adoring junkie Helena, she's hardly the ideal candidate to save Jackie either.
