A respected historian in Berkeley is shocked when one of his friends from college turns up dead. He meets up with his old friends for the funeral, but something is wrong– the will reads that the dead man wants them to shave his head. When they do so, they find an intricate and detailed map tattooed under his hair. It is a map to a chest of buried treasure located somewhere on the California coast. Because the map is partly in invisible ink, they cannot take a picture of it– so they are forced to scalp their friend's head and use the skin as a map to the treasure. Meanwhile, the baddies who did him in find out about the map and send one of their own out to rob his grave. But when the map has been cut off, they know something is amiss. Hilarity, quotability, and fun action ensues, culminating in an epic treasure discovery on top of Mount Tamalpais. Can our reluctant heroes transform from ordinary citizens into hardened killers, or will they end up just like their friend?
