It's the summer of 1971.
The Vietnam War rages on.
Nixon declares the War on Drugs.
Jim Morrison dies in a bathtub.
But all a nice Jewish boy from Miami wants to do is escape
Paradise and find Utopia.
Doug is a 17-year old hippie who sets off hitchhiking with
Nixon, his closeted gay, openly black friend. They leave in search of a
mythical, blissful commune, with no money and no map. Just a deep faith in the
benevolence of the Marijuana Gods.
Join Doug and Nixon on a psychedelic journey of free love and
cheap sex, wild dogs and escaped criminals.
Stay with Doug as he joins a busload of Jewish hippies, falls
in love, and chugs towards a hidden marijuana plantation to harvest a piece of
the American Dream.
Follow his quest for Utopia as he stumbles into the most
notorious get-rich-quick scheme of the twentieth century.
With the blessing of the Marijuana Gods, Doug attempts to transform
himself from a free-spirited, long-haired hippie into slick, super-salesman.
Instead, he discovers homelessness, alcoholism and a Satanic Cult that believes
Jesus is about to forgive Lucifer.
What did you expect from a bunch of Stoned Gods?
