Candy Mountain is an odyssey, the search of a young musician, Julius, for the legendary Elmore Silk (Harris Yulin), the world's greatest guitar maker who disappeared from the New York scene years ago.

The thread of the film and the glue that holds the narrative line together is the music. It divides the story into eccentric fragments; the music ranges from Joe Strummer and Arto Lindsay's rock urban punk to the New York sophistication of David Johansen and the humorous lyrics of Tom Waits and Leon Redbone.

Presented in a new 2K restoration.
