Also along for the ride are (Sexy) Sadie, their landlady who is also an aspiring singer, Jojo (from "Get Back"), a talented guitarist who makes his way to New York after the events of the 1967 Detroit riot, and (Dear) Prudence, a closeted lesbian who crashes into their shared apartment after running away from an abusive boyfriend.

But the real world intrudes as UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar wages on, and the political involvement (willing and otherwise) of various members of Jude's TrueCompanions becomes more and more perilous.
