In a story told in narrative flashbacks, a young TV consultant is hired by the President of a bankrupt USA to organize a telethon in order to prevent the country from being repossessed by wealthy Native Americans.
This drama centers on Hank Chinaski, the fictional alter-ego of "Factotum" author Charles Bukowski, who wanders around Los Angeles, CA trying to live off jobs which don't interfere with his primary interest, which is writing. Along the way, he fends off the distractions offered by women, drinking and gambling.

Being a long time fan of the Mind's Eye series, I was completely disappointed in this latest edition. After successfully surveying some of the best computer based animation in three wonderful volumes, they seem to slack off and go with imagery that has nothing new, and almost nothing worthwhile to offer. Some of it is nice. Some of it is neat to look at. None of it breaks the ground of offering high end imagery to the masses.
The music was also subpar in this edition. After being touched by the work of Jan Hammer, and being blown away by Thomas Dolby, they seemed to have the music take a back seat to an already mediocre offering.
My advice: Go back to The Gate to the Mind's Eye. There's more there worth experiencing.
