Herbert Huncke, a beat poet, a hustler, and a hipster is at the center of this docu-fiction film. A beatnik and a junckie, he was the pusher of the beat generation, selling drugs to Kerouac and his friends. While his friends made it to the top, Huncke was in jail on Riker's island. His poetry reflects his love for life, and for the people.
