Hollywood actor Erik Aude is on the brink of stardom after acting in a supporting role in “Dude, Where's My Car?” But almost famous doesn't always pay the bills. A gym friend offers him a free trip to Turkey and $800 to bring back leather goods. When the trip goes smoothly, Erik takes a similar trip to Pakistan. But this time, authorities discover opium in the lining of Erik's suitcase — a crime he didn't know he was committing.
