"The hardest thing about changing your life, is changing your life." This stark reality occurs to the protagonist Terry when he comes to the raw conclusion that “He can’t get there, from here”. To find his “way”, his "Tao", he goes on an external and internal journey that requires him to leave everything behind to seek redemption.
On his journey he crosses paths with a sage, gang bangers, a monk, rednecks, drug addicts and an enigmatic old boxer. In a humorist encounter, he meets an intriguing river guide who challenges his way of looking at the world. Her Zen like simplicity and passion for life awaken thoughts and emotions he had long ago abandoned.
Of all the adversaries and allies he meets, ultimately it is his internal self that he must come to know, understand and trust.
Some dream, many sleepwalk, but only a few have the courage to look life square in the eye and realize what they’ve become. And even fewer have the courage and determination to do what it takes to become what they were meant to be.
