Summary

In the winter of 2003, Legendary Filmmaker Jonas Mekas, moved out of his loft on Broadway, New York, where he had lived for the past 30 years. It was the place where he watched his children grow, and the art scene of Soho become what it was today. It was where Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg used to come by for film events and dinner. This film shows Mekas' transition in to a new life living in Brooklyn, and the adventures this entails. Discovering new friends, singing and dancing with his good friend Benn, and their adventures together. Mekas also faces what it is to live along again in Brooklyn, the place where he first lived when he arrived in New York as a misplaced person in 1947 after ww2. A film of Joy, friendship, wine, and song!
