Summary
Newly arrived to freewheeling San Francisco, Mary Ann Singleton quickly realizes just how far from Cleveland she really is. Moving into a funky house at Twenty-eight Barbary Lane where her landlord welcomes her with a joint, Mary Ann befriends the other residents and finds a good-natured home amid the drugs, drama, and debauchery. Based on Armistead Maupin's beloved novel, the Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries deftly chronicles the quest for love and connection across a spectrum of sexual experiences
