How much are you willing to invest in friendship?

In August 1969, at the Woodstock Music Festival, Roberta, BJ, Trudy, Veronika and Shelley were brought together by Valerie, an outgoing free soul who was unafraid to talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything. Now, 50 years later, Valerie is dead, and the gals are sensing that their bond is in danger. With a wide variety of life experiences and world views, what will keep them from drifting apart?
