It is 1968, and most of America is thinking about the upcoming presidential election. Not Agent Richard Cox. His only concern is getting out of Ohio. Richard hates his life and career as an investigator at the Bureau of Responsible Masturbation. Filling out reports on auto-erotic asphyxiation is not what he signed up for when he became an agent. And it is certainly not anything as glamorous as the lives of the investigators in the pulp detective novels he loves. However, his life takes a turn while investigating the death of a naked psychiatrist. What starts off as a simple murder investigation turns into an odyssey across America. Throughout his journey, Richard discovers some dark secrets both about his family and his country.
