With her husband away indefinitely, a young mother struggles to nurture her son in the face of poverty, isolation and incarceration. FLUTTER explores the truest love on earth-the love of a mother and child.
A young man named Victor realizes the shortcomings of the Utopian ideals on the hippie commune where he was raised. Victor's mother is funding the commune where the guru Insley hypnotizes and seduces women with a technique he calls "running." Insley manipulates the minds of these women so that they give him their bodies and all their worldly possessions. Victor's childhood love, Becky, returns to take care of her deathly ill father. Victor, haunted by visions of Becky's death, is desperate to save her and himself by escaping from the polygamous cult. Preoccupied with Insley's free love philosophy, the adults of the community overlook the painful reality that the self destructive behavior of their children is most certainly due to early exposure to sex and drugs. To afford an escape, Victor tries to sell weed but is cut out by rivals competing for Becky's affection.

Wow! That was a masterpiece, a piece of art. I am very much delighted. Wonderful photography, beautiful music, the lost generation was nicely shown. I would give an Oscar to the man who made this movie and to the girl who played Becky. The movie was flowing with my soul - an art - that's what that was. Everything was portrayed poetically.
I am a kind of person who hates vulgar things and nudity but that wasn't bothering me at all in this movie. I am putting it to my favorite movies collection.
I just re-watched it for a second time and I enjoyed it again. It really is one of the best movies I've ever watched, I don't remember any other movie which would be a pure ART like this one. The whole movie is like a beautiful video clip painting sad emotions perfectly. I could relate a lot with the main character Victor.
