"A vindication of flower power idealism... A flat out wonderful film!" - Rick Steves

In 1988, filmmaker Kevin Tomlinson filmed and interviewed a group of back-to-the-land hippies, living off-grid, insulated and isolated from mainstream culture.


In 2006, he tracked down his subjects again to find out what had become of their families, utopian plans and dreams.


The film captures a time-lapse view of these back-to-the-landers told with moving personal stories of non-conforming tribal families with lots of freedom but little cash, of unflinching political activism in the midst of small-town, rural America, and hippie kids who today ask whether free love was really free.
