Heirloom

Dave and Sherry came of age in the 60s—they protested war, fought for the environment, fell in love during a hitchhiking trip across the country, and raised their family in a “back to the land” community. In this poignant and funny documentary, their daughter, Director Malia Bruker, contemplates the baby-boomers’ legacy of social change and her own generation’s apathy. As Dave and Sherry retire and relocate, Malia—newly unemployed—joins them on a 4-month road trip across the US. Heirloom follows this unconventional family as they survey the mutable landscape of their country, confronting one another’s notions of idealism, social responsibility and hope.
