About Of Time and Chance
A chance meeting between a teenage farm boy and a free-spirited college girl in 1967 becomes a love story that underscores the challenges of the time. Set in rural Vermont over one summer, Of Time and Chance portrays the conflict between unquestioning patriots and a counterculture resisting involvement in the Vietnam War through powerful, understated storytelling and finely drawn characters that resist stereotype.
