Dr. Timothy Leary, pioneer of consciousness raising in the 1960s, lead a 30-year struggle to have the youth of America "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out." Self-proclaimed LSD guru, Leary recently faced a new frontier of mind expansion... DEATH. Diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1995, Leary chose to exit this planet with all the energy of his countless excursions to the outer realms of the mind. Using his new mind expanding tool, the internet, Leary broadcasted a farewell message 20 days before his death...

Joining Leary is his longtime friend Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. In the the 60s, Kesey lead a group of psychedelic jesters named The Merry Pranksters, whose adventures with Leary were legend.

Thirty years later, to the tune of never-before-released music by THE GRATEFUL DEAD, Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey, and The Merry Pranksters reunite for one last trip... Jump on the bus...
