Film Synopsis
"Giovanna Fulvi's pick"

A rock opera inspired by the Beatles songs that run through it and a love story that unfolds against the backdrop of the ‘60s, the decade of anti-war protests, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. A young couple, Jude and Lucy, get mixed up in the American countercultural movements coming to the fore and their leaders, Dr. Robert and Mr. Kite. Powerful forces beyond their control separate the two
lovers. To reunite, Jude and Lucy will have to struggle against formidable odds.
