The story of Scott Symons, a larger-than-life writer who has exiled himself to a beautiful Moroccan seaside town for over 25 years. Some of the best known names in Canadian culture reflect movingly on a man who is obsessed with love, Canada, and the erotic possibilities of birds and furniture.
The writer behind some of the first openly gay novels published in Canada, Scott Symons remains an elusive rebel who resists all labels. The surreal style of his literary works is formally echoed here in Nik Sheehan’s vivid portrait, which attempts to solve the puzzle of the man behind the enigma.
