Four band members experience a variation of encounters on a journey towards peace.
Bizarre, disjointed feature length film featuring 60s group The Monkees.

A production that was troubled right from the start, including three of the members of the band (barring Tork) walking off the set in a protest over pay, which was later sorted but cast the beginning of the end with their relationship with producer Bob Rafelson. This also may explain why Tork received top billing in the credits?
