Der buddhistische Monch Seido Oda soll Japan verlassen, um in Brooklyn den Bau eines Tempels zu beaufsichtigen. Dem in volliger Abgeschiedenheit lebenden Oda ist dies gar nicht recht, doch er muss sich dem Willen seines Ordens fugen. Was dem freundlichen, in sich gekehrten Priester im lauten Westen zustot, ist ebenso absurd wie herzerwarmend. Man nennt ihn plotzlich "e;Reverend Oda"e;, zwingt ihm die Beschaftigung mit New-Age-Kristallen auf und konfrontiert ihn mit "e;Buddhismus fur Dummies"e;. Aber so richtig ins Schwitzen bringt ihn Jennifer, deren lassige Haltung und scheinbare Respektlosigkeit ihr wahres Interesse am Buddhismus - und an Oda - lange verbergen. Wieder einmal bestatigt sich fur Seido Oda, was er schon lange wusste: Der Weg zur Erleuchtung ist lang und steinig ...
