Back in the seventies, even with the looming nuclear threat of the Cold War, the world seemed a more positive place than it is today. It was also a time when girls wore all colors of the rainbow as opposed to the ubiquitous Disney princess pink.

They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later. So when Zooey started looking through the old family albums in the chest she found in her grandmother’s attic she intuitively felt she would find something.
