A Generation Began In His Backyard.
Why can't I have it both ways?
Based on a true story, this is the tale of how a young gay Jewish man was instrumental in making the famous Woodstock rock festival a reality. He was helping out his immigrant parents at their run-down hotel, when he heard that a neighbouring town had turned down the Woodstock promoters. He offered his town as host instead, and the rest is history. Be prepared for some really quirky characters, and plenty of nudity and drugs.
