Twenty-four-year-old Abraham Evans is anxious to define himself once and for all as an adult, as a man. To this end, he has devised his own personal rite of passage. This wonderfully original short feature ponders the meaning of tradition in post-modern society and casts a satiric eye on spirituality in West Coast culture.
