In this documentary, aspiring writer Dan Wakefield moves from Indianapolis to New York City to attend college in the early 1950s, where his world is opened to a swirling array of wonders. He falls in love, dreams of writing a novel and undergoes psychotherapy. But he also meets a wide variety of prodigiously talented people -- including poet Allen Ginsberg, "new journalist" Gay Talese and conservative writer William F. Buckley -- who are destined to mold America's cultural history.
