KTVU news footage from c1966 featuring scenes from a press conference with Joan Baez, who talks about having the courage of your convictions, refusing to pay incomes taxes, what kind of music she's currently listing to (such as The Beatles) and drugs. She responds to one question by reflecting: "I don't think it's possible to drop out. And I think that's one of the things that causes such a disaster 'cos it's disillusioning... I think you're stuck here." Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
