Told as a succession of hilarious stories, Adam recounts his awkward childhood and teenage years through the many absurd family episodes that shaped his extraordinarily dysfunctional upbringing. Pulling no punches, Adam exposes with pictures and video the ridiculousness of his 60’s era Hippy parents raising their kids on good vibes, top ramen and government cheese.
