This documentary tells the story of the legendary performer and iconic social satirist, who transcended race and social barriers by delivering his honest irreverent and biting humor to America’s stages and living rooms until his death at 65. Featuring a cast of comedians, historians, activists and artists, this film dives deep into the psyche of a comedic genius.
Jenny, a deaf runaway who has just arrived in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district to find her long-lost brother, a mysterious bearded sculptor known around town as The Seeker. She falls in with a psychedelic band, Mumblin’ Jim, whose members include Stoney, Ben, and Elwood. They hide her from the fuzz in their crash pad, a Victorian house crowded with love beads and necking couples. Mumblin’ Jim’s truth-seeking friend Dave considers the band’s pursuit of success “playing games,” but he agrees to help Jennie anyway.
