Summary

One autumn, radio producers Chris and Joe drive across America, roof down, stereo up, and discover the roots of the sounds they love. They sell their souls to the devil on the same crossroads as Robert Johnson, buy booze from the same store as Jim Morrison, hang out with the spirit of Johnny Cash in his own front room and sit on a jetty by an alligator infested lake to sing ‘Happy Birthday' to country-rock musician Gram Parsons. But first they must learn the ukulele, grow moustaches, fail to get into the Chateau Marmont, get very drunk with rising popstar Terra Naomi - and that's just day one. It's a tale of friendship tested to the limit, noble myths, love lost and found, perfect lyrics, good times...
