Consuming Spirits chronicles the lives of three characters who live in a rust belt town called Magguson, and work at its local newspaper. They are: Gentian Violet 42: Victor Blue 38: and Earl gray 64, who first appear to be acquaintances. But as the film unfolds, we find they have a long diabolical history, revolving around social service intervention, foster care, romance and hatred. Each character has family secrets to hide, and family secrets to discover. An auto accident one dark and inebriated night causes a crack in the memory vault of these intimate strangers.
