Adam Nicholas abandoned classical music as a way of life in favor of a “real” job in computers, but the early-1980s recession in Silicon Valley interferes with his plans. 

Before he can lead the life he wants, there are two other experiences he must first choose, directions for which his new diploma leaves him completely unprepared: an apprenticeship at a goat farm and organic gardening center, and a low-wage job as a Psychiatric Aide at a mental hospital. 

In the process of learning to care for the livestock at the farm and the patients at the hospital, he learns quite a bit about himself.
