Robert Kolodny LAND OF NOD
Walt, a young naive journalist from the Midwest, finds himself traveling on a cross-country bus to New York. His purpose is to discover the truth and passion coursing through the veins, the pulse, of the city. As he steps off the bus in midtownís Port Authority, Walt encounters a beautiful free-spirited artist, Jane. Jane is young and mysterious. She leads Walt to her temporary home, a commune-like apartment in Brooklyn where artists, musicians, poets, filmmakers, and performers live together in creative harmony. The owners of the apartment, three radically different political activists, adopt Walt into their circle of abstract misfits and expose the workings of the social system. Walt finds himself living and working within a social system that he can no longer obey- and decides to join the group by taking a journey of self-discovery.
