Plot: This full-length exploration into the world of controversial science-fiction author Philip K. Dick is the first of its kind. A revolutionary in the field of literary science-fiction, Dick’s works inspired such film classics as BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL and SCREAMERS. But the last decade of his life was far more diverse and stranger than any of his written works. Featuring interviews with several Dick experts, including science-fiction novelists Robert Anton Wilson, D. Scott Apel, and Ray Nelson, as well as personal friends Miriam Lloyd and Paul Williams (who wrote the 1975 profile in Rolling Stone that brought Dick more mainstream attention), these individuals paint a more accurate picture of the man who began to unravel as a series of traumatic events disrupted his final years. Most notably, events discussed include the tragic 1971 theft of the writings locked away in Dick’s safe, as well as his first experience seeing God (what Dick commonly referred to as "the pink beam of light"). Director Mark Steensland’s documentary doesn’t provide biographical information about the legendary author; instead, it aims to mythologize Dick by showing him to be the brilliant, charged thinker that he was.
