A wild flower power ride in the wake of the Soviet hippie movement takes you into the psychedelic underground of 1970s. In search of freedom, a colorful crowd of artists, musicians, vagabonds and long-haired drop-outs created their own system in the Soviet Union. Years later, a group of eccentric hippies takes the road journey to Moscow where people gather annually to commemorate the tragic events when thousands of hippies were arrested by the KGB on the 1st of June.
