Olompali: A Hippie Odyssey is the story an ordinary man caught up in extraordinary times, whose life is forever changed by the social upheaval going on around him. Embracing the spirit of the counterculture revolution during the Summer of Love, wealthy Marin County businessman Don McCoy transforms his life from conservative entrepreneur to beneficent hippie dropout, using his family inheritance to lease Rancho Olompali, a 700-acre estate north of San Francisco, to start a commune. He invites a couple dozen like-minded friends and families to join him in his dream of creating a community where they can live without monetary concerns in an atmosphere of love, peace and freedom. The group becomes known throughout the Bay Area as the Chosen Family - Marins archetypal entry into the legend and lore of the Sixties hippie commune movement. Dubbed by the press as The White House of Hippiedom, Olompali quickly becomes a hip mecca, welcoming local counterculture luminaries like Janis Joplin, acid-guru Timothy Leary, and the Grateful Dead, who lived at Olompali for a brief stint in 1966. But McCoys dream of a utopian society is short-lived. Facing increasing pressure from forces within and without, the Familys blissful first year is followed by a series of shocking tragedies that threaten the very existence of Olompali and it's residents. Narrated by Peter Coyote and featuring classic songs from the San Francisco psychedelic era, Olompali: A Hippie Odyssey explores the concept of the hippie ideal and it's impact on American culture
