Overview

The world of Mexican hippies is explored in this interesting drama. The story moves between the present and the years 1969, and 1975. Alberto is an aging hippy who works at a radio station specializing in "classic rock." The film opens as he is having a bad day. His latest relationship is crumbling and his radio station is closing. He finds an old photograph and begins reminiscing about Laura, his first love, and about the life they lead in a primitive commune. As a young man, Alberto was forced by his parents to marry. He immediately burns his marriage certificate. He and Laura make love beneath a stage while a band plays "Purple Haze." Later he goes to a commune with Laura's best friend. He tries to have Laura simultaneously. Like many old flower-children, Alberto has never outgrown the Sixties. Like a cosmic gypsy, he wanders about chasing his ideals of happiness and freedom. While playing Cream and Traffic albums, he calls to Laura, pleading with her to call the station. It is his last chance at living his former dream.
