"One, two o'clock in the afternoon, after calling these major motels where I wished I could have stayed..."
Loner is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series In The Dark. It was originally broadcast in 1994.
A man talks about his life. A futile search for his motel. Paranoia, getting bad vibrations from people, being taken as gay. He declines an offer to go into town, avoids a car crash. He's introduced to a transvestite in a Paris bar, wakes up in a strange car having been robbed. Creative women are hard to find. Driving around with a couple of drunk women, hitting an owl, making crafts out of its carcass. In-home nursing for people in the Castro, experiences in San Francisco, living in the Tenderloin. Wanting to travel, make art. Blacking out on a bus and waking up under a truck in an olive field. Paranoia. He'd give up drugs if he met anyone with similar interests. Going out with gay nurses at work. Drugs and gambling.
