Errol Morris' take på den kulørte kærlighedshistorie mellem LSD-guruen Timothy Leary og hans unge kæreste, som her lægger alle kortene på bordet.

Errol Morris’ take på den kulørte kærlighedshistorie mellem LSD-guruen Timothy Leary og hans unge kæreste, som her lægger alle kortene på bordet.

En international jet set-fortælling fra det store trip i 60’erne og 70’erne, hvor LSD-guruen Timothy Leary turede verden rundt og prædikede fri kærlighed. Ved sin side havde han sin unge og smukke kæreste, Joanna Harcourt-Smith, som her folder sin psykedeliske livshistorie ud for mesterfortæller og menneskekender Errol Morris. Alt var fed fred og frihed, lige indtil Leary pludselig blev fængslet. Endte Joanna med at sælge ud og overtale ham til at samarbejde med CIA under Nixons krig mod narko? Det spørgsmål er slangen i det regnbuefarvede LSD-paradis, og Morris går veloplagt til den kulørte røverhistorie. En ægte tidskapsel med Rolling Stones og Alan Ginsberg som sidekarakterer, of course.

Errol Morris’s take on the colourful love story between the LSD guru Timothy Leary and his young girlfriend, who tells the story her way.

An international jet set story about the great trip of the 1960s and 1970s, when the LSD guru Timothy Leary toured the world and preached free love. By his side, he had his young and beautiful girlfriend Joanna Harcourt-Smith, who tells her psychedelic life story to the master filmmaker Errol Morris. Everything was peace and freedom, right until Leary suddenly ended up in prison. Did Joanna end up betraying their ideals and persuade him to cooperate with the CIA during Nixon’s war on drugs? This question is the snake in the rainbow-coloured LSD paradise, and Morris takes a cheerful approach to the colourful cock-and-bull story. A true time capsule with the Rolling Stones and Allen Ginsberg as supporting characters.
