Brian and Todd are two young students that host traveling girls with the purpose of having sex without commitment. When Chloë, a Canadian hippie, requested accommodation, they accepted her, although "she was not their type." When Chloë reveals her true travel plan, they get excited and decide to accompany her. They go to Mexico in search of a shaman to start the consumption of psychotropic cactus peyote and connect with love and spirituality by their environment. What you may not know is that once in the desert, peyote, sex, circumstances and murder, take them to confront a confused and bloody journey that will bring out your true and selfish human nature.
