Movie Info

The summer of '68 provides the backdrop for this drama that chronicles the experiences of an alienated drop-out from society who with his "chemically dependent" pal, rebels against his parents, college, the draft, and all things Establishment in the usual ways. The authentic music on the soundtrack is notable.
