Michael is straightforward and is harboring anger issues which he doesn't even realize. Brian is a spiritualist, always on the look out for the good in people. Both are having a difficult time in their respective lives. Michael seems to be more committed to his live-in girlfriend than she is to him. And Brian is fired from his job as a mechanic because he over-analyzes the customers rather than do his work. To get away and have some fun, the two decide to take a weekend fishing trip to the lake. Once there, they find what looks to be a unnamed grave marker in the middle of the forest. With only a key close to the grave with the stamp "PUM ZACH" as a possible clue, Brian talks a reluctant Michael into finding out who owned the key and is therefore the probable person buried. Based on information from a local, Brian and Michael decide to drive from their home in San Francisco to the Nevada desert to consult with an Indian shaman. On their journey, they meet among others a kleptomaniac named Cory, a man named Wayne Newton who volunteers to be their guide, a fundamentalist Christian gas station owner, and a dog on wheels. In their search for the truth, they end up finding out more about themselves than they do about who is buried in the woods. Written by Huggo See less
