Harris K Telemacher is a 'wacky weekend weatherman' for a local Los Angeles television station who is searching for meaning in his otherwise cliche ridden Los Angeles life. With the help of an insightful and talkative Freeway sign, Harris embarks on a journey through Los Angeles in pursuit of Sarah, an English reporter who has been sent to the City of Angels to research an article for the London Times.

There are numerous references to William Shakespeare
: the gravedigger scene is from Hamlet, Telemacher quotes Shakespeare twice, and the storyline contains elements from A Midsummer Night's Dream (with the two confused couples exchanging lovers) and The Tempest (with a magic storm stranding the lovers, the gods (in the form of stone lions) blessing the couple, and a character named Ariel).
