In the heart of middle America and the shadow of turbulent times, Orange Picnic is a sweet reminder of the 1960's and a story for the ages. Set in Homewood, Illinois, Orange Picnic follows two teenage couples whose lives intersect as they fall in love to the drum beat of the Vietnam War. From corner coffee shops and skipping school to the lyrics of Dylan and Donovan, the rush of romance ignites the teenager in all of us, but it is the shock of unexplained loss that awakens the adult. It takes a lifetime to learn that love never dies and youth never should.
