Storyline

In 1976 innocent young Mary Ann Singleton comes to San Francisco and, after briefly crashing with worldlier school friend Connie Bradshaw, takes a flat at 28, Barbary Lane in a house owned by the bohemian,pot-growing Mrs. Anna Madrigal, a lady who hints at a mysterious past. Mary Ann becomes one of Anna's 'children', along with personable Brian, who has given up law for bar work, Michael, known as Mouse, a flamboyant gay, and spaced out hippie chick Mona, who gets Mary Ann a job as secretary to kindly advertising executive Edgar Halcyon. Edgar is a man with problems. His handsome but feckless young son-in-law Beauchamp, who works with him, is constantly unfaithful to DeDe, Edgar's daughter whilst Edgar himself is terminally ill, a fact he keeps from his alcoholic wife Frannie whilst visiting a faith healer. A depressed Edgar is much cheered by a chance encounter in the park with Anna Madrigal, learning to his surprise that Anna's mother once ran the brothel where he lost his virginity.
