The plot follows a Christ-like character--the Thief--found lying in a dusty street, covered with flies and his own urine until being rescued/resurrected by a partial-limbed dwarf and a gang of naked boys. He then wanders through the city observing the madness of modern life, including a massacre of protesters by riot soldiers photographed by rich tourists and a tribute to the Spanish conquest of Mexico re-enacted by costumed lizards on a scale model of Aztec pyramids. The Thief joins a group of emblematic figures based on the Tarot assembled by the Alchemist to attack the mountaintop fortress of society's rulers, the Immortals. An almost purely visual bit of pop-philosophical fluff, it has been interpreted as a satire on the pretentious artistic community, the dehumanized industrial work force, the lazy bourgeois, the rigid police state, and organized religion--overlaid with the stealthy paternalism common in the '70s counterculture.
