A comedy of love and politics about growing up in the shadow of the ’60s. For 16-year-old Silvio, being a part of his high school’s ‘counterculture’ movement has been reduced to selecting clothes that will mark him a slacker, a hippie, a goth, or a politico. And while Silvio’s school is being taken over by these protest-happy political renegades, all he can think about is how to get Valentina to kiss him in the storeroom and Claudia to fall in love with him.
