In 1983, a band of hippies descends on Ardéche, abandoning Paris and materialism for an alternative lifestyle. They live in the moment, seeking pleasure, friendship and most of all a utopian lifestyle unbridled by the constraints of society. Their journey to utopia revolves around a film they produce, Treasures from Rutabagas. What is meant to be a 30-year escapade is left unfinished and the former clan bears little resemblance to their utopian beginnings. Coming up on the 30th anniversary, director Lisa Diaz, daughter of commune members, inherits the rushes from her father, the one-time filmmaker. She refuses to believe the utopia is unattainable. This is her journey through the gates of time. Driven by a pressing desire to see this generation finish something, she puts her father back in the director’s chair and struggles to orchestrate the end of this quest.
