The documentary goes back to the three days that would change the way a whole generation was approaching music, arts, but also politics and social rights. In a period where open air festivals where something rare, four young entrepreneurs, two from the business world and two hippies, decide organizing an event whose chances of success were apparently minimum. Although they finish building the site just before Jimi Hendrix played, the organizers succeed in creating something more than they could have ever imagined: a current that would become an influence in America and the world for years to come.
