Watch the Truly CA film: SLOMO by filmmakers Josh Izenberg and Amanda Micheli. (Running Time: 16:14)

“I think what I’m doing, with all due modesty, is a type of flying … The shrinks or the psychoanalysts would call it a personal delusional system.”

Neurosurgeon Dr. John Kitchin had the kind of material wealth most of us only dream of — a 12-cylinder BMW, a Ferrari, an exotic animal farm. He also spent every waking hour working at an unfulfilling job. Then one day he decided to leave the rat race. Now known to the beach locals simply as Slomo, he traded his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.
