Throw together a jaded hypochondriac ex-pat beeraholic, a Nobel-Prize-hungry mad professor and a computer geek hell-bent on payback and what do you get? An Abomination.
Norway, 1999. At 30-something, ex-yuppie Robert J. Roid Jr. is pretty sure he’s got life figured out, and it’s not a pretty sight. Expatriated in Oslo, a rock ‘n’ roll pub owner with a serious nose for Austrian beer and a nasty case of hypochondria, he plows through women, drink and junk food like a lost weekend with no Monday in sight. Living the carefree bachelor life together with two impossible roommates, one day melts groggily into the next as the rest of the world waits for the millennium to arrive.
But fate clearly has other plans for our reluctant hero; a chance encounter with an overzealous doctor and his sabotaged medical software is about to send Robert off on a wild Yeti-chase, desperately seeking a cure for his newly acquired disease, Homo nivis abominabilitis - the Abominable Snowman Syndrome (ASS).
Hitting the road, he takes just about every wrong turn possible, but ultimately ends up taking a journey inwards, a place he has studiously avoided for years. Along the way true love unexpectedly comes knocking, he serendipitously stumbles over the Holy Grail of pilsner beer and finally uncovers the shocking truth about the Abominable Snowman and his own ASS.
