Marcus and Daniel have been
inseparable throughout their adolescence. When Daniel is no longer
there to provide his customary encouragement and support, Marcus
goes through a series of personal crises, the sum of which cause him
to experience an emotional breakdown. Running away from all of the
heartache in his life, Marcus sets out on a cross-country journey of
self discovery, following in the footsteps of his personal hero,
Neal Cassady. It’s 1967, and the Hippies of Haight Ashbury have
replaced the Beatniks of Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’. Hoping to
find himself, Marcus instead loses himself in the fast-paced world
of Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll during the Summer of Love.
This coming of age story,
set in the Sixties, offers an updated Hippie era parallel to Jack
Kerouac’s anthem of the Beat generation.
