Summary:Fifteen-year-old Joanne, raised in San Francisco's Haight District, becomes involved with Martin, a hippy, and various aspects of the late 1960s cultural revolution despite her middle-class upbringing.

It's 1967 and Joanne's San Francisco neighborhood has become inundated with hippies for the "Summer of Love" which thrills her but appalls the rest of her family. In the midst of preparations for her sister's wedding, Joanne meets Martin, an enigmatic and irresistible hippie, and begins to see him secretly. Over the course of the next year, Joanne discovers a world of drugs, anti-war demonstrations, and psychedelic dances that both fascinates and frightens her.

As this world collides with her family's values, Joanne must decide whether to stay in her safe middle-class family and pursue her love of classical music or follow free-spirited Martin into a new kind of life.
