In New York City, just as the Beat literary movement is beginning to take form, writer William S.

As Burroughs' and Vollmer's affiliation with poets Jack Kerouac (Daniel Martínez) and Allen Ginsberg (Ron Livingston) draws them into a world of sex, violence and unbridled creativity, the dark center of their tumultuous union threatens to come to a head.
