Gary and Shelley are teen lovers. Gary's burning desire is to be in a rock and roll band. With his best friend and drummer Greg Elmore in tow, the musicians set out for San Francisco. Shelley runs away from home, following her man to the big city life; they marry a few weeks later. Within months the members of Quicksilver Messenger Service join their musical forces and hit the stages of the Fillmore and Avalon Ballrooms with their cronies, the Dead and Jefferson Airplane. But Shelley watches with growing dismay as her young sweet husband turns into an egotistical Casanova. These changes create struggles in their fragile new marriage neither is emotionally prepared to deal with. From a houseboat in the middle of a swamp, to a dairy farm in the hills of Marin, to a house on a hill in Fairfax, enter the tumultuous world of this young couple as they take a wild ride into San Francisco during the '60's when everything seemed possible, when magic was the norm, and when growing up turned out to be the hardest thing of all.
