Paul McGrath documentary focussing on John and Yoko's famous 'Bed-In for peace' at the Queen Elisabeth Hotel, Montreal in May and June 1969. After spending their honeymoon conducting the first of their anti-Vietnam war Bed-Ins at the Amsterdam Hilton, John and Yoko decided to try to repeat the process in another location. Refused entry to the U.S. on a visa violation, they subsequently tried the Bahamas, but finding the heat oppressive, finally settled on Montreal. Exploring how the elements of the event came together, McGrath interviews various people who were present, among others, Yoko Ono, the comedian Tom Smothers, and a variety of journalists and music industry figures. Also included is an interview with Andre Perry, who helped produce the subsequent 'Give Peace A Chance' single, the live recording of which is captured in the film. Among bonus features included are press and TV interviews conducted with John and Yoko in December 1969, the 'Give Peace A Chance' video featuring Eric Clapton, and an interview with singer Petula Clark, who visited the pair during their stay.
