Disillusioned with his life and the mundane stress of living to pay your rent that plagues young people in London, our narrator, a struggling actor in his early 20's, travels to Peru where he embarks on a perilous journey to discover the secret Inca temple Quyllur-Wasi. With the towering Andes and sprawling Amazon before him he seeks an escape from 'real life', an adventure to make the explorers of old proud. However, being completely unprepared for the whole thing, events start to go a little sideways. Miles from civilisation, and with no contact with the wider world, he must fend for himself in a land getting more dangerous by the minute. Alone in the wild, and pursuing a goal he isn't even sure exists, he is left with ample time and opportunity to reflect on quite what it is he is doing with his life.
