From the DVD:
In the late 60s, a changing social and political climate inspired a new generation to create a lifestyle outside of the mainstream. Twenty-two year old Arlo's journey to find a place for himself and his music includes a visit to his dying father in the hospital, gigs in NY and romps with his friends Alice and Ray, who run a small restaurant in Stockbridge, Ma. And when an incident at Alice's Restaurant plays a pivotal role in Arlo's avoidance of the draft, it sends him down a road that he will consider a small price to pay to keep his freedom and his beliefs.
