A hippie, counter-culture, anti-establishment road film. A teenaged boy and girl meet in Big Sur, California and begin a hitchhiking adventure traveling north to San Francisco. The "interesting people" they meet include two switchblade-wielding psychopaths who threaten them, a Benzedrine popping pervert trucker (he urinates on them!) who locks the boy in the back and bangs the girl up in the cab, and a drunken alcoholic "swinging couple" in a cool 1950's car who take them for a wild ride! Long hairs, guitars and bongos! Lots of "Iron Butterfly sounding" rock n roll. Music by: The Friends of Distinction. The sixties were still alive in 1972... Thumb Tripping!
