A bittersweet story about the promise and the peril of idealism
A father with a dream.
A stalwart of the protest movements of the 1960s, Kit Bricca worked with everyone from Joan Baez to Cesar Chavez to Daniel Ellsberg and helped start Amnesty International USA. He gave himself to The Movement and hoped that revolution was around the corner.
A son with questions.
Yet there was another Kit Bricca, the man who sold commodities and life insurance, silver and gold. And yet another in the guise of his alias Tatanka who was a shamanic healer and clairvoyant. As 2013 arrives, Kit’s son Jacob arrives at his father’s doorstep in search of answers.
A journey to find the truth.
Hidden in his father's trove of old photos and flyers is the truth of an era and of a family's collapse. Following his father on adventures with inventors and healers, visionaries and psychics, Jacob tells a sweeping story about the fate of American idealism and paints an indelible portrait of a man who refuses to let his dreams die.
