Documenting the life and last days of the one-time Harvard psychology professor who was fired for his promotion of America's counter-culture and psychedelic tripping. Timothy Leary's admission that he had incurable cancer gave the film its impetus in mid 1995. Calling death "the graduation" Leary's approach was full of adventure, courage and a remarkable sense of humor. The father of the "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out" era of the sixties examines in fascinating detail his strange voyage from straight psychologist to hippie philosopher, LSD guru, prisoner (sentenced to 30 years for two joints of pot), Hollywood gad-about, Internet junkie, and pop icon.
