Blake is a rock star. Brilliant but beset by demons, he is slowly buckling under the weight of fame. Rarely emerging from the faded elegance of his mansion, he has cut himself off from the hangers-on, the parasites and users who once taunted his every waking moment. Hiding even from his friends, refusing help, Blake descends ever deeper into inner turnoil until eventually he realises he has only one way out... Inspired by the last days and final hours of the iconic Kurt Cobain, Gus Van Sant's tells the mesmerising story of a soul in transition.
