"You gamble, you believe in luck. Like if you're swimming, you believe in water. Right?"
Robert Marling is on a losing streak. He's a struggling architect with a gambling problem, and a wife who is suing him for divorce. When he meets Heaven, a transexual streetwalker who glimpses the future in her dreams, his luck begins to change – for better, and for worse. A tale of chance and weirdness on Auckland's K Road, HEAVEN was made into a feature film by Miramax in 1998.
