From chaste kisses to lost innocence; from the bohemian world of sixties Sydney to the counterculture in San Francisco; from radical feminism to disillusion; Cassandra Pybus opens the door on her own life and transforms it into a mirror to reflect ourselves.

This candid and passionate journey through personal history and memory offers a meditation on place, on politics, on the pain of disappointment and betrayal, interwoven with a surpringly heart-warming love story.

At times sensational, at times inspirational, this is Cassandra Pybus at her luminous best.
