Rainbow Diner is the true story of how siblings Astrid and Benny handle an unorthodox, bicoastal childhood raised in turn by a saucy, larger-than-life gay father in New York, and an unpredictable, uninhibited hippie mother in California. Dad was all about martinis, dancing and getting laid. Mother saved black widow spiders and the homeless. Brother Benny was Astrid’s immutable compass. He kept a straight face, his eyes glazed. All Benny wanted was to stay in one place. With all hell breaking loose, will Astrid and her beloved little brother navigate the ’70s and ’80s and survive childhood?
