Max (Sean Bones) lives in Brooklyn. He enjoys playing soccer, skateboarding, and
drinking with his friends at local bars. Last summer he and his girlfriend, Willow
(Norah Jones), won a free cruise to Jamaica but two days before the trip, she
dumps him cold. When his friends flake, Max winds up alone on the high seas
navigating through crowds of grey-haired cruisers. Over the course of several days
he flirts with the staff photographer, drinks cocktails with the boat s celebrity juggler
and has several strange encounters with the only other loner (Kevin Bewersdorf).
When the cruise liner docks in Jamaica, Max quickly escapes the tourist zone. At
a local jerk stand he meets a charming Rasta who offers to show him a secret
beach. Feeling irie as he lounges on the tropical sand with his new friends, Max
loses track of time and his personal belongings. In his pathetic attempt to do
something about it, he finds that the cultural divides he thought he could transcend
are not so simple. Naked and broke in a foreign country where he stands out like a
sore thumb, Max begins to make his way towards the American Embassy in
Kingston. Along the road Jamaica is waiting to meet him.
