Based on a true event, One Sausalito Summer is the story of how one enclave of rock music began in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cass and Lia visit the Charles Van Damme dry-docked ferry boat for a summer. Cass’s musical experiences and involvement with Jesse a musician, contrast with the romantic endeavors of the boat Captain, Howard and Lia. The Van Damme’s coffee house, The Ark is the meeting place for all the rock and folk musicians for miles around. This one summer begins the legend of the San Francisco Bay Area rock music history.
