A ficticious present-day poet living in Venice Beach struggles with the loss of his lover and the unraveling of his personal life while he participates in the filming of a documentary about his career. The opera combines musical theater, choreography, and an original silent film which is projected onto the stage as a key dramatic element in the story.
