Kit Bricca was a leader of the Bay Area protest movements of the 1960s and 70s with a fierce passion for social justice, but found the transition from activist to breadwinner a challenging one. In this moving, psychologically complex documentary, filmmaker Jacob Bricca follows the extraordinary journey of his father Kit, a man whose uncompromising idealism changed the world but tore his family apart.
Using home movies of Kit organizing with Joan Baez and Cesar Chavez in the Sixties, starting Amnesty International USA West Coast in the Seventies, then later transforming himself into a high flying commodities broker in the Eighties and a shamanic healer named Tatanka in the Nineties, Jacob tells a sweeping story about the fate of American idealism and the thin line between dreams and delusions.
