Where were you in 1999?

Matt Traxler was living in Davis, California, out of college and heartbroken. When his occasional pot dealer Jay Rasco suggests moving to Miami, Matt figures he has nothing to lose. After packing up his Peugeot stationwagon they drive cross country and discover Florida is as friendly and familiar as any other alien planet. Through hurricane warnings and paranoia that Y2K might change it all, the duo search for adventure, romance, meaning, and Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth.

1999 was a time when a missed phone call could mean everything. An era when superstores ruled the earth and sometimes it took two whole minutes to log on to the internet. It was a time when everyone thought maybe, just maybe, the world might change forever. It was The End of the Century.
