Few men have changed the course of American storytelling in the way that author Tom Wolfe has done. He revolutionized writing in the 1960s with creative non-fiction and new journalism and perfected the reported novel with achievements like A Bonfire of the Vanities. But Wolfe has remained an elusive literary figure. Until now. This documentary, the only film ever made about Wolfe, chronicles how he conducted his research in Miami for his upcoming novel, Back to Blood. It is not only a peak inside the creative process of a master artist, but a study in how a great American writer has persisted in his craft for half a century. Tom Wolfe has taken on perhaps the most complex subject of his career, Miami's exotic free-for-all, teeming with immigrants and ambition. This is the story of how Tom Wolfe got Back to Blood.
