A tragic film about the love story between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marienne Ihlen. They met in Hydra, one of the Greek islands, in 1960. They were part of a bohemian community made by foreign artists. The film documents their relationship from the beginning in Hydra, where it was characterized by free love and open marriage, to Cohen's professional career becomes successful and their relationship, inevitably, evolves too. Their love story will remain forever. The documentary also explores the tragedy that befell those that could not survive the beauty of Hydra, the highs and lows of Leonard's career, and the inspirational power that Marianne possessed. The director of the movie, Nick Broomfield, met Marianne precisely in Hydra when he was also 20 years.
