Jack Kerouac, meet Michel Tremblay. The King of the Beatnicks squares off against The Bard of Mont Royal. It is 1969, and a wide-eyed Michel Tremblay has just written what would become his defining work, Les Belles Soeurs, and has travelled over a thousand miles to meet his hero, Jack Kerouac. Kerouac, in what will be the last year of his life, has seen his career steered into a dead-end and is determined to drink himself to death. The two writers’ worlds collide and explode in a spirited battle for common ground, going head-to-head on the art of writing, inspiration, music, religion and the most innate quality they share: their Quebecois heritage.
