Ray Shackleford is trying to deal with the death of his father and the collapse of his marriage when the impossible happens: music from legendary artists that no one has ever heard before begins to play from his stereo speakers. It is only the first step on an extraordinary journey that will take Ray to Los Angeles, London, Cozumel, and points far beyond, and bring him face to face with Jim Morrison, Brian Wilson, Jimi Hendrix... and his own mortality.
