Off-beat, quirky story of a girl's awakening through art, sex, consciousness, psyche and spirituality.
Executive by day, lover by night, Angelina chases men and business in hope of finding love and success. Convinced that she is more than a child, a doll, a daughter, a lover or a working machine, she leaves the familiar behind, to discover who she is outside the boundaries.
Questioning everything, popes, prince charmings, mad men and material girls, she hitchhikes across America to explore new ways to live, and invent a new life.
At ease with elite and bohemia, Angelina changes her costumes, and plays the parts to survive. Monks, gypsies, artists, goddesses and nomads, all teach her something she needs to know to be free.
Told with humor and sensuality, from the 50’s to these days, the journey captures the evolution of a mind, the forging of a personality, the becoming of an artist, and the ripening of the American Dream.
Demystifying God, sex and commerce, when plastic cards, careers and lovers come and go, she climbs the mountain, and becomes one with it.
