The film reveals Ferlinghettis true role as catalyst for numerous literary careers and for the Beat movement itself. One-on-one interviews with Ferlinghetti, made over the course of a decade, touch upon a rich mélange of characters and events that began to unfold in postwar America. These events include the publication of Allen Ginsbergs Howl, William S. Burroughs Naked Lunch, and Jack Kerouacs On the Road, as well as the divisive events of the Vietnam war, the sexual revolution, and this countrys perilous march towards intellectual and political bankruptcy.
