A young traveler who reads Arthur Cravan on the bus and converses with him secretly, is carried away by the most surreal present by the hand of a Jew determined to build a Sukkah to end up in a Baptist church with a 53-year-old junkie who lives in a rusty car. An experimental story where first-person narration is mixed with a direct transcription of the protagonist's flow of thought.
