Wealthy twenty-two year old Max Frost - born Max Jacob Flatow, Jr. - is a rock music superstar, he a rock music franchise unto himself. He has cut ties with his parents, especially due to the control wielded by his overbearing mother, Daphne Flatow, that control against which he rebelled and is still rebelling in the form of having an entourage solely of young people, who he believes knows better than people even a few years older than them. Age-wise, the senior member of his entourage is his acid-dropping girlfriend, former child star Sally LeRoy, age twenty-four, the junior member being fifteen year old Yale law graduate Billy Cage, his business advisor and his band's guitarist.

A film with the juvenile concept of the young people taking over the country takes the idea to some amusing conclusions. The aging members of the U. S. Senate are trying to convene session while stoned on LSD, and the center of the film, Max Frost, who becomes a rock star and President, finally sees his chance to get even with his domineering mother played by Shelley Winters. While it doesn't do much in its stereotyped portrayal of the 60's counter-culture, going a mile wide of any attempt at nuance or depth, it has a lot of energy and creativity. Directed by Barry Shear, who in the early 70's made ACROSS 110TH STREET.
