Three generations of girls (mother, daughter, granddaughter) clash in a romantic comedy during the summer of 2003 on an old hippy commune that jumps back to life after a fourth of July reunion.
When 15 yr old, New York born and bred, Sally Williams, gets stuck for the summer on her grandparents (Wesley Morris, Jennifer Kapshaw) old hippy commune in Beddington, Maine, all heck breaks loose. Things take an interesting turn when Sally meets local town hunk, Josh Terwilliger, then decides to throw her grandparents a surprise 4th of July party by inviting some of their old friends back to the place they called home during the mid 60’s and 70’s. Things really get out of control when more show up than expected. Insanity creeps in when they decide to take one last ride across the country to California, stopping along the way to visit the old communes of the past, only to discover, it’s not what it used to be. A trip that almost didn’t get to happen when Sally’s mother, Christine Williams, shows up early from her job assignment. Resenting her upbringing, Christine comes full circle with who she is while her daughter comes of age, and Jennifer teaches them both that “you can’t trick fate.”
