Drama

"I wanted to be one of the wild ones, the ones who broke free." These words begin the semi-autobiographical tale of Catherine's (Elizabeth Rice) journey in 1968 into the heart of the sexual revolution in San Francisco. She dances naked in the Paradise Club. The soul singer stirs up the customers. "Brothers and sisters, these are good times! America's doing' fine!" Catherine begins a doomed affair with the club's owner, Earl (Eric Roberts). She meets her soul mate, Ben, (Evan Williams) but love eludes her. She quickly descends into the club's dark underworld where she lives by night while America burns with the war in Vietnam, political assassinations and anti-war protests. By the end of 1969, peace and love are dead and Catherine must find her way back into the light.
