The partners and friends Wyatt and Billy buy drugs in Mexico and sell them I n Los Angeles, raising money to travel to the Mardi Grass in New Orleans on their chopper style bikes. They cross the country on a musical ride through spectacular landscapes and encounter counterculture groups and also experience small town intolerance for their looks and lifestyle.
Edgy and seminal, Easy Rider encapsulates the dreams, hopes, and hopelessness of 1960s counterculture.
