Karen Bird, a southern belle who never quite took the debutante idea of life, and Jack Blueblood, a half Native American/half Irish ball of fire, meet while both committed to the Second Chances mental facility. Their bond is immediate, pure emotion as they quickly fall in love. When Karen is mistreated by the resident Doctor, Jack loses control and kills the Doctor and anyone else who gets in their way as they escape the facility to head across the country to fulfill their destiny’s, to assassinate the King of rock n’ roll. We follow them on their journey of bloodshed en route to its ultimate climax in the city of dreams, Los Angeles. Shangri-La Suite is a film about two mad lovers and their quest for glory. A meditation on youth, America, and love. Coppertone, nicotine, and the open road. It’s a film about fame and redemption; wanderlust and freedom. The endless pursuit of something better somewhere else--- Valhalla, the blue yonder… Shangri-La.
