We learn that his mother died by suicide a few months after his father’s death, and thoughts of his parents are with him every day. The film takes a turn of style as Van Gasteren begins to act, playing himself as a good- timer who cheats on his wife with casual encounters.

After one more disillusioning scene in Millbrook, Louis closes the door on drugs. He tells us that he stopped using LSD after it became illegal, but adds that had it not been for LSD, he would surely have taken his own life, just as his mother and grandfather did.
