Olivier (Renaud Verley) is a student rebel who scams a trip to Nepal to look up his big-game-hunting father. Sampling the decadent nightlife of Paris, he attends a party where his fashion-model mother is stripped naked. Olivier then joins a world-hunger relief program to secure transportation to Nepal and falls in with a bunch of drug-addled hippies who pay lip service to the pursuit of spiritual guidance. The group gets a ride with Laureen (Arlene Dahl), a sex-starved American woman who takes advantage of the free-love ethic. Eventually they arrive in Katmandou where Olivier falls for a drugged-out hippie girl he tries to reform. He meets his father but is sorely disappointed when he gets no money from him. Worse yet, his father's sidekick makes a move on the hippie girl when she is in a drug-induced coma. Finding the girl dead, Olivier seeks revenge for the girl's demise. He tracks down the sidekick, but the man's wife is the first to reach the malevolent hunter and kill him.
