“World: You’re so full of shit!” states American hippie Dave, with eyes lifted fiercely toward the sky. Fresh out of the war, this Michael Shannon lookalike arrives in early 70s Tel Aviv bent on finding a likeminded pack to join him in a quest for “Freedom!” in some yet-to-be-discovered utopia. Will free love, joints and world-weary ramblings make way for peaceful existence on an island in the Dead Sea, or will certain absolute necessities and a duo of nondescript agents mow over the hippie ideal like bulldozers over flowers? Only this long lost psychedelic spore of truth can tell. Freedom!
