Pick Up the Peace

Pete: "Ray High, now an old ’60s rocker, is meditating in what looks like a cell in a secure hospital. He sees three teenagers from his neighbourhood getting together as kids do, playing, flirting, talking, and forming a band. Then he has an intuition that they are going to become stars. They are Gabriel, Josh and Leila. (They call their band The Glass Household). In striking contrast he sees scenes from his own childhood in the same neighbourhood, bombed buildings and old soldiers."

Pete from an Oct. 16, 2006 interview with Rachel: "’Pick Up The Peace’ which is about, how do we find a way to relate to the possible peace in society, and our community, and also the inherent peace in the universe?"
