Description: The film tells the story about the evolution of an artist and of how Tony Kushner, raised in the Deep South in Lake Charles, La., would become an outspoken activist, a compassionate spokesperson for outsiders and one of today's most entertaining and important playwrights. At its core, the film explores the mystery of creativity, and its source, and Kushner's compelling plays that are set against the moral and political concerns of our times.
