Former rock star Lachlan MacAldonich (Carlyle) has settled into a comfortably numb existence working on an organic farm just outside Los Angeles. By day he travels to the city’s farmers’ markets to sell produce to people like Beau (Alexia Rasmussen, Our Idiot Brother), a lovely struggling actress. By night he drinks himself into a stupor until he retires to his shabby apartment where he records a podcast about great musicians. But everything changes after Lachlan pulled over one night for drunk driving and is subsequently threatened with deportation. Disconsolate and fearful, Lachlan is forced to confront his decadent past and the demons that continue to plague him.
