Embracing the spirit of the counterculture revolution during the Summer of Love, wealthy Marin County businessman Don McCoy transforms his life from conservative entrepreneur to beneficent hippie dropout, using his family inheritance to lease Rancho Olompali, a 700-acre estate north of San Francisco, to start a commune. He invites a couple dozen like-minded friends and families to join him in his dream of creating a community where they can live without monetary concerns in an atmosphere of love, peace and freedom. The group becomes known throughout the Bay Area as the Chosen Family - Marin's archetypal entry into the legend and lore of the Sixties hippie commune movement.

Narrated by Peter Coyote and featuring classic songs from the era, OLOMPALI: A HIPPIE ODYSSEY reflects the idealism of the hippie movement and its enduring message of peace and love.
