Set in the late '60s in tumultuous San Francisco, a Hungarian immigrant family struggles to define their individual roles in the rapidly changing world around them. The father starts a cafe while one son becomes politically active, joining the Robert Kennedy campaign. A second son enlists in the Army, discovers he's gay, and joins the anti-Vietnam movement. This independently made film is a scattershot attempt at touching the many divisive issues of the times.
