(Based on a True Experience)
A free-loving flower child and her hippie ex-boyfriend struggle to reconnect amidst the chaos of sex and drugs at a tragic and doomed 1972 music festival that signaled the end of the Peace & Love era.
Labor Day week, 1972: Connie, a free-loving flower child, talks her hippie ex- boyfriend Brandon into taking her with him to a three-day music festival in Southern Indiana, the ‘Woodstock of the Midwest.’ When Connie reveals her true agenda to win Brandon back, it brings their past into play. Brandon soon wonders if bringing her was a mistake, but Connie is hard to resist. Last minute injunctions threaten to cancel the event, but with 75,000 hippies in town and many of the big touring bands of the day already announced, it seems the festival can't be stopped. A councilwoman offers the producers a lifeline. A deal is made to rent a privately-owned island just across the Illinois state line. Over 250,000 freaks, hippies, and anti-war protestors herd onto the nine hundred acres that become known as "Bull Island." Thus begins the amazing effort that will soon create an epic and ionic, though tragically doomed rock festival, which signaled the end of the Peace and Love era. Despite all the chaos at the festival, there are enough magical moments to function as the catalyst for Connie and Brandon’s relationship to reconnect. Finally, Brandon tells Connie that he never stopped loving her, and she cannot help but let him know that she knew it all along.
