Alice, a young English girl escapes London at the tail end of the Sixties for a sojourn in San Francisco. She quickly discovers that the psychedelic world of tie-dye and joss sticks belongs to the previous decade when she becomes involved with the unwitting creators of Glam Rock: a glitter daubed, sprawling theatre group, leftovers from the insular Haight-Ashbury crowd. Alice gets sucked in beyond her head, but just when the crazy theatre group's popularity overdoses, she goes over the top and is shipped back to London. By now, the early Seventies are in full decay, as is Alice. She continues her frantic slide by falling in obsession with a fragmented member of the Art World. Their exhausting fling, fuelled by a cocktail of excess is interrupted by repetitive bouts of insanity, like a San Francisco acid flashback. No holds are barred in this funny but shocking saga of drug fractured psyches. It's hard to predict who will stagger on into the Eighties intact.
