In the first trailer for the film, Cera travels through Chile with a group of pals and meets a fellow American named Crystal Fairy (Gaby Hoffmann). Crystal promptly latches onto them as they make their way to the beach, where they plan to consume the juice from a legendary San Pedro cactus.

In The Hollywood Reporter’s review of the film, chief film critic Todd McCarthy writes: “Watching a bunch of people take a drug trip is seldom either entertaining or edifying, but Chilean director Sebastian Silva manages to make it at least tolerably amusing.”
