Description

Guy Fontaine's time has passed. It's 2022, and he's an involuntary resident in assisted living at Mission Pescadero, California, "the premiere retirement community in Half Moon Bay"-and in the company of others his age who are yearning for a time when life was fun. Precisely: 1967, the days of sex, drugs, peace, protest, rock and roll, and revolution. The drugs may be a little different, but when change is necessary, revolution is still revolution. As an epic battle begins between authority and the oppressed, young and old, intolerance and free love-complete with twenty-four-hour news coverage-the radicals of the newly christened Pepper Land are going to raise hell. And crank up the music.
