Upon examining his life, Winn Conover, successful businessman, pillar of his community, discovers that "something was missing. It was not was something inside." Investigating further, he learns that he is much more than the maddening clutter of his life. Finding that sacred self within but unable to maintain its presence, he walks out of his suburban home one night naked, stripped of his old identity. Thus begins a spiritual odyssey that takes him across the country working as a casual laborer, eating and sleeping in truck stops, sharing his wisdom with his new friends. In Santa Fe, living among the pueblo Indians, he becomes "Anglo Who Became Chief Old Woman's Son." But, before he can claim his new identity, he must return to his family and allow them to release him.
