Comprehensive documentary of Charles Bukowski (1920-1994), one of those rare writers whose work created a myth of epic proportions around its creator. Over the years, the name Bukowski has become synonymous with drinking and fighting, seedy barrooms and foul-mouthed prostitutes, low-paying jobs and roach-infested hotel rooms.

For readers, Bukowski has come to personify the lower depths of human existence; in a direct, powerful and very personal style, he writes about an unthinkable but very real degradation-degradation based on his own life experiences.
