Synopsis
A portrait of writer Paul Goodman, who with his book "Growing Up Absurd" (1960) gave a voice to a generation of young people and helped define a New Left. He was an openly bisexual philosopher, poet, essayist, and pacifist whose work was essential to the emerging gay movement of the early 1970s. Privately, he lived his life with equal devotion to a wife and family he cherished. Here, we get an intimate look at his unapologetic lifestyle.
