Storyline

Small time drug dealer Al Dean (Geoffrey Hanson) sells pot to his friends in the small Colorado ski town of Ajax, in hopes of raising enough money to buy a house for himself and his brother, who is in the VA hospital. He will finally be able to afford the house once his shipment of "Nepalese Temple Balls" comes in. When they finally arrive, a pig named Scrapple, which was procured at a pig chase, eats the hash balls and Al finds himself drawn into a big time drug deal in order to purchase the house.

Unique and funny look at 70's hippie ski-town life.
31 May 2001 | by (Englewood, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Absolutely unlike ANY film I've ever seen before! The music, scenery, story and characters leave you wishing you could return to this simpler, care-free time. If only places like "Ajax" (Telluride) still existed today with it's good friends, good tunes, and good times. I've watched this video over and over and still find myself singing along, reciting my favorite lines, and discovering more of it's charm each time. All I can say, is if you lived through the 60's and/or 70's, (regardless of how much you actually REMEMBER...) you've got to give this film a look. It's appeal is so unusual it's hard to quantify. The search for one's self, trust and love, a renegade but loveable pig, "temple balls", Taj Mahal's music, outstanding film backdrops, good friends, all combine for a very charming and creative film. Give it a try if you can track it down...it'll be more than worth the effort!
