"It was to be the trip of a lifetime.
Yet what lay in store would change them forever."

Friendship, hedonism and wanderlust compel Mancunians Conrad, Rob, Will and Paul to visit
the US at a confusing time.

With the Iraq war petering out and the prospect of a recession
about to break their trip culminates in the dark heart of New Mexico where primeval
traditions and internecine disuptes rage on.

Their sanitised view of American culture: poker, hot dogs and skyscrapers - is replaced with
horrific ancient rituals and the kidnap of one of their number.

To save him the others must win big in Vegas...
