It's 1967, the Summer of Love. When twenty-one-year-old guitarist Stephen Cane's promising band falls apart, he is forced to move back home to Topeka with his Christian mother. Unwilling to give up on his rock and roll dreams, he moves to New York to patch things up with his former friend and bandmate, Dylan John, a pioneer of psychedelic rock whose band, Red Afternoon, is on the verge of making it big. When Dylan unexpectedly quits the band to be a civil rights activist, Stephen is handed the opportunity of a lifetime to replace his brilliant friend and prove to himself and his alcoholic father that he is a great man.
Against the backdrop of a nation in turmoil, Stephen takes a journey deeper into himself, questioning his dreams, his quest for greatness, his parents' conflicting advice, his inability to choose wisely in love, and his racial bias.
We Are All Together addresses a nation struggling with its mythological past and the effects it has had on the integrity of the individual. Does the artist owe the world anything? Does the ailing world need another rock star?
