Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:Plot

Journalist Raoul Duke and attorney Dr. Gonzo travel from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1971 to cover a motorcycle race for a sports magazine and enjoy a haphazardly planned vacation. The vacation turns highly irresponsible and reckless as the two consume copious amounts of illegal drugs, commit various acts of fraud, and generally reap mayhem upon the citizens of Las Vegas.

Set in Las Vegas, a symbol of American consumer and tourist culture, during the height of the Vietnam War and the closing of the 1960’s counter-cultural movement, Duke and Gonzo find themselves as outsiders in a unique position to analyze the present state of America and chase down the “American Dream”.
