In a desperate attempt to escape, Spitz embarks on an epic pilgrimage from the grimy streets of London to the back alleys of Istanbul, Tehran, Kabul and Karachi.

En route, Spitz finds himself questioning his life and the values by which he lives. He discards his mohair suit for the more ragged apparel of the seasoned traveller, picks up a copy of the Bhagavad Gita, and heads East in search of Enlightenment. Of course, nothing comes easy to the true pilgrim. Before he realises what is happening, Spitz finds himself drawn into the machinations of the underworld thanks to his old mate and temporary travelling companion, Frankie. Escaping from a web of corruption in Istanbul, Spitz finally heads East alone.

What he finds is far beyond his wildest imaginings and a world away from the hashish dens and drug culture associated with the hippy overland traveller. The turmoil of pre-revolution Iran, and the hippy communes of Afghanistan, all leave their mark on our jaded hero. However, it is not until Spitz reaches Karachi that he finally finds his guru - but the message received from this naked old man is so shocking and unexpected that Spitzs world collapses.
