The story of a neurologist who leaves everything behind to find meaning in rollerblading.

Depressed and frustrated with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to the beach. There, he undergoes a radical transformation into Slomo, trading his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.
