Follow his teenage journey, as he seeks stability, traveling alongside his best friends Bubba and Slick, but finds only temporary refuge in alcohol, drugs and sex.

Meet Larry--his reclusive, convulsive, neighbor--whom Turtle unwittingly befriends, unaware Larry holds the key to inner peace. Will Larry’s otherworldly, grandiose, sometimes comically absurd philosophies, intertwined with mysticism and ancient spiritual teachings, help Turtle rediscover his way?
