Summary Filmed over 18 months, this documentary is an indelible portrait of a complex male friendship rarely depicted on screen. Sam Shepard and Johnny Dark met in New York in the early 1960s and, despite leading very different lives, remained close friends. Shepard became a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright and an Academy Award-nominated actor, while Dark was a homebody who supported himself with odd jobs. Nevertheless, he and Dark continued writing to each other, amassing hundreds of letters.
