Guys in Their 20s in the ’60s is twelve interconnected stories told through the experiences of three former high school buddies—Adrian, a musician; Mitchell, a theater student; and Dave, a carpenter.
Starting in Sacramento, then swept up in the great migration to San Francisco, they encounter real world challenges while pursuing their plans: a music career that’s inconsistent; a college degree that might be out of reach; a simple lifestyle away from the chaos. Improvising as they go—learning, loving, evolving, road-tripping—they persevere in spite of seismic events all around: political assassinations, civil rights struggles, antiwar protests, and campus disturbances.
Helping to shape their stories and negotiate a cultural revolution is a diverse cast of characters: girlfriends, jazz cats, student activists, drama geeks, nightclub musicians, stoners, and dreamers.
