In Bright Day, a Presidential re-election campaign is in play when Richard Nixon plans a stop at upstate New York's liberal Hartwick College. Reminiscing over the 60's political movement, a professor of 18th century poetry tries to incite his befuddled students to get proactive, if not overly creative, to protest the occasion. Four hippies emerge with the hair-brained scheme to spike Nixon's water glass with LSD. It doesn't turn out well. This farcical protest piece features a cadre of eclectic 70's era characters and politicians down to the shocking finale featuring Tricky Dick himself.
