Description: Two German brothers, one a kitchen counter-top salesman and the other a Feng Shui consultant, want to get their screwed-up lives together by going to Japan for a retreat in a Zen monastery. Enroute, their mid-life crisis turns into a midnight crisis when they get lost in Tokyo's neon jungle and can't find their way back to their hotel. It's down and out in Asia's brave new world. Having lost their passports, credit cards, directions, and with no Yen in their pocket, they wander through a kaleidoscopic alien environment where the most routine tasks become major, often comical, challenges. They have to survive by their wits and certainly never expected the Zen concept of "leaving everything behind" to be like this. Life in the monastery is an immersion of a more subtle kind. The mundane and the sublime - where does the one stop and the other start? What does cleaning the floor have to do with cleansing your heart? Still, the enigma of enlightenment keeps them going. Although it often seems just within their grasp, it continues to elude them. And yet, even they don't fully realize it, at the very core of their being, its changing them...
