Description by KOCH Entertainment Distribution:
Part claymation and part live action, The Junky's Christmas, depicts a story by William S. Burroughs written in 1952. Danny the car wiper, a desperate character who has just been released from jail on the upper west side of Manhattan, searches for a fix on a cold Christmas day. His story ends in a revelation that even Danny could never have thought possible.
