Desperate for a job with the LAPD, unemployed army veteran Jim David (Bale) kills time by driving around and getting high with his friend Mike (Rodriguez). Jim wants to settle down with his Mexican girlfriend (Trull), but the rage he carries inside threatens to push him over the edge.
Shot and acted on an adrenaline rush, Harsh Times has the free structure and intensity of a true indie film, but is sometimes just a little off-balance.
