In the late 1960s a hippy girl leaves her middle-class home and wanders first to a wilderness commune, then to Haight/Ashbury, and finally to Woodstock. On the way she encounters many strange characters. Though often disillusioned, she believes hippies should unite to create a better world. It's a wild tale: sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, sometimes violent, sometimes sexy, always extreme.
