Canadian American leftist documentary filmmaker Leonard Fife was one of thousands of draft evaders and deserters who fled to Canada to avoid serving in Vietnam. Now in his late seventies and dying of cancer in Montreal, Fife has agreed to a final interview in which he is determined to bare all his secrets at last, to demythologize his mythologized life. The interview is filmed by his acolyte and ex-star student, Malcolm MacLeod, in the presence of Fife's wife and alongside Malcolm's producer, cinematographer, and sound technician, all of whom have long admired Fife but who must now absorb the meaning of his dark confession. -- adapted from jacket
