When you spend a lifetime trying to find something you don’t have, a young man making his way in the world that doesn’t love him, doesn’t trust him and is trying to kill him, love becomes fear. Baby don’t hurt me is what we say when love isn’t safe. When the world is full of double agents, cyborg killers, and psychic battles, love is a myth. This quest for love, for a moment of safety in a world of danger and madness is what Luxuia is really about. Sex, drugs, rock and roll, fighting, fucking, betrayal are what you fill a day with when the emptiness of your heart is asking just to be loved.
