What united Uschi Obermaier, German icon of
1968, French star designer Phillipe Starck and
English publisher Tony Wheeler? All three took
a hike, among thousands of other hippies, in
1967/1968 to travel the world. This documentary
series revives the journey along the legendary
backpackers route as a cinematic road movie.
