Flamboyant Max Plugin is a jaded relic of the 1960s who has never really grown up. In his teens, Max ran away to northern California, where he met Teschlock, a charismatic ascetic and guru renowned among a small group of young followers. Teschlock asked Max to join him and his disciples on an ashram in India, Max declined and returned home to his family. Now, forty years later, at age 57, Max takes a journey to India to find Teschlock's unknown grave-site, and also himself. His adventures in India, and his Castaneda-esque experiences back home, form the heart of this very unusual road movie.
Don't worry, a tour-guide may not be necessary...

Did You Know?
The film is based on the lead actor's own life. William Cully Allen
ran away from home at the age of sixteen and hitchhiked across country from Massachusetts to Florida and finally to California. Like the character, he returned home about a year later. During this time, he did not encounter a character named Teschlock or even like Teschlock. This is the fictional element of the backstory. See more
