Quentin Dettweiler or 'Q' as he's more commonly known, is a man of intense curiosity, passion, and taste. A man who finds himself living a life that is in direct antithesis of what he seeks. After migrating from his hometown in the Midwest, Q lives in Alma Perdida, a coastal inlet in sunny Southern California. He lives a sordid, robotic life - the life sold to many as the pathway to the American Dream. A 26-year old healthcare consultant by day, and uninspired by night, he passes day after day in tedium yearning for adventure he figures long lost, his only solace to put his thoughts and pains to paper. Directionless and achingly comfortable in a complacency beckoning him to dive in, Q is on the edge when he first encounters a man unlike any other: Jersig.
Jersig is in his mid-thirties, the kind of man with airs about him, a man who seems to hold the key to the secrets of life. A wealthy, "self-made" native Californian son who prides himself on being able to spot innate talent hidden below the surface, Jersig quickly see's something in Q that piques his interest, and subsequently befriends him. As a friendship is forged, Q slowly starts to learn to actualize what he internally believed always to be true, but never dare voiced aloud: he possesses greatness inside him. More importantly, he can learn to draw it out, and use it to impact others. Perhaps Jersig does hold the key to the secrets of life...
Or perhaps in all his mystery, he just holds secrets...potentially dangerous ones.
