Synopsis: Although largely unknown today, American author and composer, Paul Bowles, was an influential figure in New York’s literary and artistic society in the 1930s and 1940s. With the publication of his first novel, "The Sheltering Sky", Bowles turned his back on the U.S. in 1947 to begin a new life in Morocco with his wife, the author Jane Bowles. Celebrity writers such as Truman Capote, William Burroughs and Gore Vidal followed the charismatic Bowles to Tangier and an illustrious circle of literary friends was formed. Although both Paul Bowles and Jane Bowles indulged in homosexual relationships, they were a devoted couple and maintained an intense life-long bond. Using conversations with Bowles, interviews with numerous fellow companions, archival recordings and original animations, this documentary captures the life of a man who remained a restless traveller who never committed to anything – least of all his own identity.
