But within a few days of their arrival in Atlanta, George cannot handle it and he convinces Linda to return the commune with him. She agrees and they decide to give the lifestyle two weeks. Linda starts to enjoy the environment but George is not so sure and when they are both approached for "free love" they start to rethink their decision. But ultimately, Linda wants to explore this and George cannot handle the idea so he goes back to Atlanta where he realizes he cannot live without Linda.

At the same time, the commune is being threatened by real estate investors and the deed cannot be found. Linda ends up flashing the reporters who come out to cover the story which ends up getting them a reprieve while they continue to search.

Best part of story, including ending: I found this movie boring and rather stupid. I pondered turning it off more than once.

Best scene in story: When George decides to go back for Linda.

Opinion about the main character: George seemed a little bit wimpy.
