“My middle name is 'doesit', there's a hint. 'Lance' is just a word like 'fuck' or 'bang' – well, not really 'fuck', cause that's got every meaning except one that 'Lance' has – it's also like 'hit' or 'bang'… that means drugs, right? Where 'fuck' just means… uh… more than fucking a broad… it means fucking around, ya know? That word is taken pretty lightly but 'Lance' means all that plus the drugs, ya know, it encapsulates all of that. 'Freely' speaks for itself – as often as possible, whenever I can, all the time, Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday-Saturday-Sunday. Lance Freely everyday – I don't give a fuck what day of the week it is – what hour of the day it is…"

A rough film school documentary portrait of Mettler’s best friend as an adolescent whom he meets again after six years – now moved out of his parents home, and into hardcore living. In a long take, Lancalot talks directly to the audience, revealing a character full of anger and extremes. Addressing the illusion of the neutral, objective documentary, the camera was sometimes handed over to the subject himself. Lance reveals some of his philosophies of life and frequented locales, as he willfully "fights his way to the last ditch."
