Based on Clane Hayward’s memoir “The Hypocrisy of Disco,” Lane 1974 tells the true coming-of-age survival story of 13-year-old Lane, who lives on a Northern California commune with her hippie mother. Life is wild and free until her mother, a rebel and iconoclast, alienates them from the security and safety of the community land. Forced to move from one place to another, Lane witnesses her mother slowly discarding her siblings and those who remained close friends, until they are left alone. When Lane’s mother takes up with a new partner, Lane must make a choice on how to survive.
