The story of Eik Skaløe and 'Steppeulvene'. The rockband 'Steppeulvene' and its lead singer Eik Skaløe, the poet, who became a symbol of the search of the hippie movement, serve as a starting point for the questions: Why did the movement die? Why did so many people die when the music is still alive?
