But the road can be long and lonely- youll need some good company. Jeremiah Blades had it all in 1967, the Summer of Love: a coveted DJ spot on Boston Top 40 radio, Eve, his adventurous young Flower Power wife, and Gideon, his beautiful baby boy.
Then he lost it all. Seventeen years later hes living a hermit existence in the woods of New Hampshire, wishing he could find his long lost son, when Artie Turnbull, a shady character from Jeremiahs past, shows up with a bundle of stolen mob money. He wants Jeremiah to deliver the cash to a reclusive Indian hippie named Joseph Ironwing Longfeather living somewhere in the wilderness of the Arizona desert. For the favor, Artie offers him a cool $40 thousand in favor money.
Energized for the first time in years, Jeremiah buys a Harley-Davidson Softail and sets out to find Longfeather so he can make the promised delivery before beginning his search for Gideon. Along the way he picks up Sonny Ortiz, a gorgeous, albeit slightly pregnant, hooker whos running from her past and wants to change. For Sonny and Jeremiah the road will be a long and dangerous one, with no guarantees theyll find what theyre looking for at the end.
For them, its the open road and a search for a new life in an unforgiving land.
