The beautiful, enduring love story between legendary folk singer Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen is explored in this film. The story begins on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, where Leonard, then a struggling and unknown fiction writer, and Marianne, a single mother with a young son, became part of a community of expat artists, writers and musicians. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and the late legendary documentarian D. A. Pennebaker make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960’s bohemia. It was a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another fifty years before their deaths in 2016.
