That summer the road came to an end back where it all began -- in San Francisco -- where thousands gathered one last time for eulogies from bandmates, friends and family at the memorial for Jerry Garcia

"Breaking The Rules is a journey through time that leads the viewer through 50 years of American counterculture. The film bops its way through New York's Jazz clubs of the '40s, tours the country with Jack Kerouac and the founding members of the Beat Generation, dreams with Martin Luther King of a better world, grooves along during the Summer of Love and joins in to celebrate the first HipHop block parties in the Bronx. The documentary includes archive footage, interviews with poets, writers, musicians and political activists and features striking locations in New York and San Francisco. The film charts the journey of the radical American sub-cultures into the mainstream - the message, the music, the clothes or the language itself. What was once a protest against the status quo ultimately becomes part of it""--ABC2 TV guide (online)
