In the drama Peace to the Pied Piper, a sheltered girl falls in love with a counterculture rock musician, believing he is embodiment of the inspiring lyrics he sings.
It’s 1968 in California, and everyone is getting their groove on, except Holly Harte. The youngest of two girls in a strict Catholic family, Holly doesn’t even know what groovy means.
Her sister is not the chaste, tractable daughter her mother believes, and exposes Holly to rock music and the hippie counterculture where she learns it’s not all flowers in your hair, peace and love, baby. It’s drugs and sleeping on the street and begging for food. Her sister has an illegal abortion, and is maimed for life by the “doctor.” The Harte family now wants to cloister Holly so she doesn’t suffer the same fate as her sister.
Holly flees back to the freedom of San Francisco, while secretly nurturing the hope that she’ll run into Toke, front man for the group Alien’ation–a group well known by her sister prior to her “accident.”
Toke is a babe magnet, and Holly’s no exception…except that this time Toke is taken by her innocence and earnestness. They end up together. Holly is no longer the chaste daughter her mother prayed for.
The group is on the verge of breaking out. Toke lets it go to his head, at the same time discovering acid. The women he messes with make him feel invincible, while at the same time he believes he’s creating the musical legacy he so craves.
Holly is betrayed one final time and flees…but she’s pregnant.
Peace to the Pied Piper begins in current time, morphs to 1968 and follows Holly’s revolution along with the country’s transformation at the end of this tumultuous year. The movie full circles to current time, when secrets kept for decades are revealed, legacies built and we’ve glimpsed what the era of peace, love and tolerance created for future generations.
Peace to the Pied Piper is filled with imagery music, passion and heartbreaking drama.
