But Sharon wants to join the hippies and be part of the changing society, so she leaves home and heads out. Upon arriving in California, Sharon is thrown into an adult world for which she is unprepared, and she embarks on a precarious journey amid the 1970s counterculture.

It’s a story of belonging, independence, of surviving against the odds. Is freedom just another word for nothing left to lose as Janis Joplin sang?
