Life for seasoned traveler Nick is in disarray. Despite the knowledge and skills he has invested in his adventuring group, his respected leader has expelled him, his girlfriend has broken up with him, and his comrades have brazenly accused him of embezzling.

Nick stumbles into a few people who share his cynical outlook while he is exhausted, upset, and seeking a drink. This group of disillusioned explorers is an irresistible force determined to rescue their grim, gloomy world!
