SYNOPSIS
Like lots of young guys basking in the afterglow of WWII, Neal dreams of settling into a simple, stable domestic lifestyle, supported by a steady job as a machinist.
But, like lots of young guys, Neal’s got trouble with women–his girlfriend’s depression has driven her to a suicide attempt, and the angry mother of an underage former lover is on his trail.
The movie is based on a letter that the young Neil Cassady wrote to Jack Kerouac. Cassady was the inspiration for Kerouac’s seminal beat generation novel “ON THE ROAD.”

"Every shot is drenched in rich period detail so acute it has a surreal edge."

− New York Times
