In January of 1971, four young men who knew absolutely nothing about music convinced an entire town they were a hot new rock and roll band on the brink of stardom. A lie that crazy could only go one direction... completely off the rails! 20-year-old Arthur "Ziggy" Zigmond has ideas. Lots of ideas. But no one wants to hear them. Especially the three guys he works with. When they head north from Chicago in a VW bus to shoot a local beer commercial, they become snowbound and stranded by a raging blizzard in Hibbing, Minnesota—hometown of the legendary Bob Dylan. To snag free motel rooms, Joe Studebaker, their maverick ad agency producer, impulsively passes his hapless camera team off as major rock superstars hiding from the predatory media until their upcoming world debut on national television. This loopy charade sets off a chain of wacky events that leaves the cash-strapped townsfolk spinning in their wool socks—and the local teen girls in an adolescent frenzy. When Janey Olsen, a 19-year-old of uncommon grace, catches Ziggy's eye, she abruptly flips his world upside down. Beset by recent tragedy, Janey is also hiding a deep secret of her own. Love, lies and desperation have never been so outrageously hilarious... and so equally heartbreaking. Hiding in Hibbing is a wildly careening look at the end of a decade spun by political turmoil and social upheaval; the turning point of cultural chaos that defined who we were then and what we would ultimately become.
