Storyline

In evaluating his life and not liking what he saw, a man quickly and radically changes from what western society considers a conventional life to what it labels "hippie". This change is both physical and mental. He feels his new perspective on life has brought him closer to his wife and his two children. As being a hippie is considered counter-culture, he and his family are increasingly being isolated in society, even from certain old friends and acquaintances. Even at his trucking job where he has worked for over ten years and where the owners who used to treat him like family, the relationship has changed solely because of how they perceive his new look and attitude. One of the most important aspects of the change is in how to deal with his children and whether their marijuana use is a double standard as they have taught their children that illicit drug use is wrong.

Insightful 1971 short doc of how the times were a-changing
9 March 2014 | by kjs2525See all my reviews

Fascinating cinema verite about a California man and his family as they are influenced and changed by the shifting values of the 60s. As as the man begins smoking pot and growing his hair longer, he starts to re-evaluate what's really important, like spending more time with his kids, and less on the overtime demands of his trucking jobs. Again, a powerful slice of reality from 1971, a golden time. If this period in American history interests you then this doc will give you a good feel for the times. If you've ever wondered what a pot party among a few couples lolled and sounded like from this period, this doc gives a perfect example.
