He was a filthpig, he had an M.D. Doesn't that stand for "make dollars"?

Orangeland is a metaphor for the Florida that is not advertised in travel brochures or experienced by tourists in theme parks. It represents the Florida of the exploited and their exploiters, the Florida of human predators and prey. Orangeland examines the situations of the desperate, con-artists and elderly as they attempt to navigate the backwaters of a land that lures the gullible by offering the promise of a tropical paradise.
