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.

The film's aspect ratio is unusual in that is has been formatted for a screen size of 2.16:1. Growing up, one of director Daniel Kremer's greatest influences were the obscure films he would watch on "grey market" VHS tapes. The films on tape would often have unusual aspect ratios as a result of collectors incorrectly formatting the widescreen frames during homemade telecine VHS transfers, often rendering unusual screen widths. Kremer decided to do the same with this film as it is a tribute to the "journey films" of the 1970's. See more
