The Summer of 1969. Hippies… free love… the draft… drugs… violence
in the streets… Vietnam. The Woodstock Music Festival was a beacon for a
generation looking for a world of peace, love and music. For two seventeenyear-
old singer/songwriters from the West Coast, LORIAN and MERYL, it’s
the once-in-a-lifetime dream to travel cross-country and perform at the
festival. Defying the odds, their parents, sometimes their own better
judgement… and hooking up with an eclectic cast of characters, they make a
road-trip of self discovery. Along the way they find their own three days of
mind-expanding, life-changing love, music and friendship.
