Documenting the author's participation and arrest for transgressing a police line in the September 1967 March on the Pentagon, the film captures Mailer, at the height of his 60s literary fame, appearing in several of his many guises: journalist, film director, father, anti-war crusader, novelist, intellectual gadfly, television personality, provocateur. With appearances by future film director James Toback, talk show host Merv Griffin and legendary NY disc jockey "Cousin" Brucie. Written by
