Four aging old adventurers meet at the home of their now expatriate guru in the western seacoast village of Sayulita Mexico. This is a story of commitment and rescue between these devoted old friends. Their 1960's attitudes, tempered by the years are tested in a post 911 world.
Ren Hadley and Doug Gove, cousins from New Jersey meet again, in their early thirties, in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Both men, struggling with failed marriages and child separation agony seek the assistance of a psychotherapist, Palmer Anderson. The three men, along with another of Dr. Anderson's clients, Jake Wilbert attempt to regain their foothold in the post hippy, cult oriented 1970's that was Saint Paul.
Thirty years after establishing and solididifying their relationship, despite their extremely diverse life paths, Hadley, Gove and Anderson, along with Anderson's brother, Ian gather at the home of the now expatriate, Dr. Anderson in the western Mexican seacoast village of Sayulita. The decision to include Jake Wilbert after all those years proves questionable. He drags them through the local illicit drug trade, sexual infidelity, a dangerous confrontation with an indigenous tribe and a romp through a new age, clothing optional resort. They establish liasons with a Japanese-Mexican beauty, a pretty Seattle travel agent-Anthropologist and a group of Alabama society belles ending with a violent clash with the unstable Mexican political scene.
This is a story of commitment and rescue between old friends. Their 1960's attitudes of acceptance and tolerance, tempered by the years, are tested in the post 911 world as they discover just how much they have come to still rely on each other and just how important that reliance has become as they have aged.
