Growing up in an expat-filled enclave of Hong Kong in the mid 1970s, Clint Khatib is an independent, thoughtful teen who loves music, movies, geography, and imagination. Oh, and he thinks he might be invisible. A reluctant encounter with a high-tech chameleon costume, a free-spirited grandmother, and an underage meditating faux-swami propel him on a journey spanning 2 decades and 4 continents.
New Age Superstar

A surprising set of seemingly-unrelated circumstances conspire to offer pianist Clint Khatib a rare chance to experience 1990's music industry first hand, from its highest highs to its lowest lows. When tastes of the record-buying public eventually turn away from the New Age genre, and "go Grunge," will it mean the end of Clint's career, or provide a path back to Xander, the love of his life?
