'Young people, our age. We’re the moment. Henry’s just that bit too old he can’t understand.’ 1967. Kenneth and Sandra meet, and it's a whole new world. A fiery relationship is sparked in the haze of the 60s, and charred by today's brutal realities. From passion to paranoia, Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.
