This sophomoric comedy, shot on a $40,000 budget, was the USC thesis project for writer/director Dan Mirvish. Simon has just returned to his Nebraska family after spending a year seeking spiritual enlightenment in Nepal and other exotic countries. He left to escape his weird family, but now he finds himself back where he began; he is having some trouble adjusting. But for a handful of Buddhist prayer stones given to him by monks, Simon is flat broke. It is his former girlfriend Gina who tells him that the stones are emeralds. Simon's readjustment is hindered by a gang of Colombian crooks, a gang of kickboxers, and a TV news team who are all looking for those stones. The film's climax takes place at "Carhenge," an imitation of Stonehenge made out of cars.
