In the early 1950s a small group of writers and painters gathered in the Bohemian quarters of New York and San Francisco. They voiced their concerns over America's post WWII euphoria in a manner so raucous and colorful that the media took note and dubbed them the Beat Generation. This film portrait of this volatile period of American culture is illuminated perfectly through rare archival footage and interviews with those who lived through and influenced the era.
