A triumphant final portrait of ruth weiss... Beat poet, jazz performer, writer and painter.

Legendary Beat poet and jazz performer ruth weiss (deliberately lowercase) grew up in 1920s Vienna, escaped the Nazis in 1938, hung with Jack Kerouac in the 50s, and was still on stage on her 90th birthday in San Francisco. Filmmaker Thomas Antonic accompanied the poetess during her last years, tracing her life as a grand collage that transcended the Beat.
