It probably happened to you. You go out partying to escape from reality and, without really knowing how or why, you find yourself helplessly caught up in the momentum of the night. A party is much more than a gathering to celebrate something or have fun.

The party is that longed-for moment of freedom, a place to lose yourself and perhaps never find your way back.
