Paul and Sylvia meet by chance and there is an immediate connection. He is a Vietnam Vet; she is an aspiring filmmaker. Both are children of immigrants. They have only seen the strife of married life until they meet Max and Miriam Yasgur, the owners of Yasgur's Farm. Paul and Sylvia see how love and affection can blossom into a lasting relationship. Although historical fiction about the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival and making of the Oscar-winning documentary, the story has a deep connection to the author's life. The Yasgurs' backstory (not fiction) mirrors Reed's parents'. A teenager in 1969, she did not attend the festival but Woodstock made a lasting impression on her.
