Truman Capote left an indelible mark on American prose with landmark works that include Breakfast At Tiffany’s, In Cold Blood and Other Voices, Other Rooms. An individual as complex and intriguing as any of the characters he created, Capote was a fearlessly out gay man, literary titan and high society gadabout who found his celebrity status both seductive and destructive. Through never before heard audio archives and interviews with Capote's friends and enemies, this intimate documentary reveals the rise and fall of America's most iconic gay writer, and dwells strongly on his final uncompeleted novel Answered Prayers that set out to expose Manhattan’s social aristocracy.
