Summary
A defrocked, alcoholic, and emotionally-troubled minister struggles with his desire for earthly pleasures as a tour guide in Mexico. Shepherding a busload of school teachers and one libidinous 18-year old girl, he becomes entangled with the teen, suffers a nervous breakdown when discovered, and strands the group at the remote and rundown seaside hotel of his old friend Maxine. As his emotional state continues to unravel, and the group's problems increase, the hotel is joined by a travelling artist and her aged poet father, with their own secret troubles
