    • Synopsis
    • Peace, Love and Freedom! A wild flower power ride on the footprints of the Soviet hippie movement. In search of freedom and happiness under the thumb of the Soviet regime, a colorful crowd of artists, musicians, freaks, vagabonds and other long-haired drop-outs created their own underground network called the System. Years later, a group of eccentric hippies from Estonia take a road journey to Moscow where people still gather annually on the 1st of June to commemorate a tragic event in 1971, when thousands of hippies were arrested by the KGB.
