After fulfilling a promise at a beach off the Pacific Coast Highway, Jake Trevallion continues north to a snowcapped Mt. Shasta. Exhausted and overwhelmed after climbing to ten thousand feet, he reminisces over the events of his life that led him to this desolate place.
He thinks of his parents and memories of life growing up in Montana. He recalls his new life in Los Angeles and his three best friends: Aggie, a homebrewer who wants something more than his day job. Zeke, an actor struggling to catch a break in the business. Hank, better known as HB, who could have it all but claims he wants nothing except to have a ‘good time and a goodbye.’ Their adventures take them from the dive bar they love, to outlandish parties in the Hollywood Hills, to a final camping trip under the stars.
He relives his memories of Jacinda. When a chance encounter sets off a series of events with the woman of his dreams, there are consequences each one of them must face. And like the storm bearing down on Mt. Shasta, so too will Jake be forced to accept reality.
Through all of the imaginings and meditations over the people and places in his life, it dawns upon him these events share a connection. They are directing him toward the path he knows he must take.
But his newfound clarity comes with a price, and when the storm descends, it may be too late.
