Männer die auf Ziegen starren

Als der kleinstädtische Reporter Bob Wilton einen Mann interviewt, der behauptet Veteran einer supergeheimen Spezialeinheit zu sein, deren Mitglieder auf das Töten durch Blicke, durch Wände gehen und Gedankenlesen spezialisiert sind, kann es sich eigentlich nur um einen völlig Durchgeknallten handeln. Doch als Bob von seiner Frau verlassen wird und daraufhin als Kriegsberichterstatter in den Irak geht, wird er eines Besseren belehrt. Denn dort trifft er auf Lyn Cassady, ebenfalls Mitglied dieser seltsamen Psychokrieger, die in den 80ern von Althippie Bill Django ausgebildet wurden und sich selbst „Jedi-Krieger“ nennen. Für Bob klingt das nach einer tollen Story und so schließt er sich seinem neuen Bekannten an, um ihn bei einem absoluten Geheimauftrag in der Wüste zu begleiten. Eine irrwitzige Odyssee beginnt.

  • a.k.a. L'uomo che fissa le capre

Bob Wilton è un giornalista pavido e impacciato, abbandonato dalla moglie e a caccia dello scoop della vita. Inviato di guerra in Iraq nel tentativo disperato e maldestro di attirare l'attenzione della fedifraga consorte, Wilton incontra lo stralunato Lyn Cassady, soldato Jedi e monaco guerriero appartenente alla New Earth Army, un'unità sperimentale dell'esercito americano che vuole "combattere" le guerre col flower power. In grado di attraversare i muri e di fermare con lo sguardo il cuore di una capra, abili nel leggere nel pensiero del nemico e nel dissolvere le nuvole nel cielo, l'esercito hippy, fondato dallo stupefacente Bill Django, accoglie tra le sue fila il giornalista, iniziandolo al lato nobile della Forza. Tra rapimenti, vagheggiamenti e dosi massicce di LSD, Bob Wilton scriverà il suo articolo e ristabilirà l'equilibrio nella Forza.
