Beloved by both Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, Lu Anne Henderson has never told her story. Lu Anne was a beautiful 15-year-old girl in Denver in 1945 when she met Neal, a fast-talking hurricane of male sexuality. The two married, and soon they were hanging out with a group of young would-be writers, including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. But Neal and Jack initially didn't like each other. Lu Anne ended up loving them both, and she taught them how to love each other--giving Kerouac material for one of the seminal novels of the 20th century, On the Road. One and Only traces the immense struggles of Lu Anne's life, from the split-up of her family during the Great Depression to the ravages of abusive men and a late-life heroin addiction. It shows how her life intertwined with Jack's and Neal's to the very end. -- Amazon.com

San Francisco's bohemian history was already renowned - and then intensely amplified when the 1950s creative renaissance came on the scene. The most significant influences of this movement were Beat figures Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Filmed on location in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood, and at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, this film is a tribute to the ongoing vision of America's renegade minds - and a salute to the visionary power of Jack Kerouac. Narrated by Kerouac's biographer Gerald Nicosia
