In 1947, Americans traumatized by the Great Depression and World War II, entered the Cold War era determined to confront Communism with nuclear weapons and a rising generation conditioned from earliest childhood to use them. Weaving live music from the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, David Bowie and others with live action and rare documentary footage from the 1960s and 70s, Boomer recounts the inspiring story of the Baby Boomer generation, their ultimate rejection of the military culture their parents sought to impose upon them and how their unwavering faith in "peace and love" reshaped the world and ended the Cold War.
