Cast & Crew
Hippies Dean and Karen fall in love; and Dean, needing money to take Karen away, agrees to help Link and his hoods smuggle marijuana across the Mexican border. Dean abandons them when they kill two narcotics agents, and he returns to Link's place to pick up Karen. There Link puts LSD in Dean's drink to make him hallucinate. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang abduct Karen in hopes of trapping Dean so that they can kill him. Dean is lured to the beach to be set afire; instead, he causes Link to go up in flames. The hoods, surrounded by police at Link's place, are killed in an exchange of gunfire. Dean rescues Karen and departs with her on his motorcycle after alerting the hippie community of the "free grass" in the hoods' car.
