Summary

Two drugged-out couples contemplate life and morality in "Leviathan", a classic short story by the masterful Tobias Wolff.

For Helen's 30th birthday party, her husband decides tothrow her a small party. Armed with booze and three grams of cocaine, the four partyers - Helen, her husband, and another couple - spend the night and the next morning in a drug-induced stupor. As their talk turns to past misdeeds and shameful acts, the couples begin to wonder if it's not the bad decisions in life that bring happiness and meaning.
