Haiku follows the journey of Ian Watkins, an aging Rock ‘n Roller that has lost his muse. Now he is a journalist working for a Seattle music magazine sent on a journey to interview Paul Kerrigan, one of the last surviving beat poets from the 60’s Haight Ashbury scene.
On his journey he encounters a strange cast of characters, places and experiences he has never dreamed of, and a transformative way of life involving simple living close to the land.
He is followed through the forest by the Wild People, a tribe that has chosen to live a primitive lifestyle. He meets Laura Kerrigan, Paul’s daughter, who is denying her musical talents and magic. Ian witnesses an odd mystical occurrence in the forest with Rima, Laura’s daughter.
Through all of this Ian finds a way to connect with himself that reawakens his creative flow.
