Come abord the « road-movie » portrait of Oscar-award winner and director, Michael Cimino, narrated by the master himself, with the exceptio-nal participation of Quentin Tarantino and Oliver Stone.
First acclaimed as a prodigy, Cimino was then cast aside in the latter part of his career. Still, he is now revered everywhere, especially in Europe. His personal life is relatively unknown, as he rarely talks about himself. This secrecy has inspired all manner of fantasies about the man. Embark on a documentary journey following the trajectory of a film genius who was destined to crash and burn despite directing movies (7 movies including the grandiose "HEAVEN’S GATE") that earned their spot in the hall of fame of American cinema.
