Synopsis: Jenny, a deaf runaway who has just arrived in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district to find her long-lost brother, a mysterious bearded sculptor known around town as The Seeker. She falls in with a psychedelic band, Mumblin' Jim, whose members include Stoney, Ben, and Elwood. They hide her from the fuzz in their crash pad, a Victorian house crowded with love beads and necking couples. Mumblin' Jim's truth-seeking friend Dave considers the band's pursuit of success "playing games," but he agrees to help Jennie anyway.

Take time... this one is

deaf... and a runaway.

It's bad enough for a kid without

problems that's caught up in this mess.

So, this is kind of a vacation.

Where you from?

She's a runaway. The Cops are

flashing her picture around.

I'll be glad when this

costume-party is over.

And these creeps grow up and start

to make a living like everybody else.

Morning, brothers.

Brothers ..

Newcomers, aren't you? Everything okay?

Yeah, okay... now shove off. Huh!

Hey man, that was kind

of stupid, wasn't it?

I'm sorry, man.

Peace and love. Non-violence, remember?

You ain't being very hip at all, man.


Peace and love to you too.

You got a place to go?

My brother lives here.


No, really. Okay.

See you.

Thanks for the coffee.

So long.

You know, man is

related to man... things.

What I mean is everything

is part everything else.

It really blows my mind.

It trips me out.

It grooves.

Beautiful, huh?

Where is our posters?

Over here.

You going to put them up today, Stoney?

Yeah, we need the business

or we lose the gig.

Dave been in?

Not for a while.

The bastard's never here when you need

him. Hasn't showed up to play in a week.

Hey, Stoney man. Where you from?

Everybody's got to do his thing, right?

Now, Dave's got his bag,

and you got yours.

Hey Warren, did you get my drums fixed?

Yeah, man.

They don't sound so good without acid.

There you are, man.

I thought we played real bad last night.

Well Itchy thought it was

real psychedelic, man.

He means crude.

We really dug the violence.

Next time, why don't we just break

up our instruments. And fight.

And loot.

For love.

Pretty good grass.

You... are in no shape to drive us.

I'll drive.


Amazing. Really beautiful.

Okay. Bye-bye Elwood.
