Synopsis

The true story of lesser-known Beat Generation figure Lucien Carr, who was responsible for introducing Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs to each other during their post-war student days at Columbia University. Carr later became involved with Joan Burroughs, a wild-living Columbia journalism student and William's eventual wife, whose accidental death in Mexico City in 1951 haunted the literary-icon-to-be Burroughs for the rest of his life.
