A short documentary about writer, poet, critic, and editor John Lent. Lent discusses the connections between music and writing, talks about drawing inspiration from the material of one's life, and reflects on teaching and writing. A segment about his life with the visual artist Jude Clarke is included. Lent reads “Cold War: Remembrance Day” from Frieze; a poem called “Weightless” from Cantilevered Songs; and a segment from his novel, A Path to Ardroe. The film uses music from Lent's band, The Lent Fraser Wall Trio, which features Lent on vocals.
