ELMORE DEAN follows a day in the life of songwriter Elmore Dean, a man who has enjoyed success in the music industry since his late teens, working as a song writer for hire for numerous musical artists. Dean is successful and has done it all it seems, but to him, most important is that he has done it on his terms, always in control, carving out a special niche in the songwriting industry by being a man always in demand, while managing to remain relatively obscure and in the shadows, not caring for the limelight. The film follows Dean over one day in his life, but it's an atypical one, as the man who has always lived on his terms and has always been in control is now being thrown off his game as he prepares for an evening where he is going to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, which will include Dean making a speech in front of his peers at Radio City Music Hall. Elmore Dean is a man who has always shied away from the limelight, now he has to stand up and account for himself.
