Considered one of the most important writers of the twentieth century, William Faulkner came to Brazil as a special guest of the International Writers' Meeting. But the writer's coming did not work. Faulkner did not appear in any event day, leaving all in the hands.

To investigate the possible reasons for the non-writer presence at the meeting, it was discovered that Faulkner often appeared at the hotel bar where he was staying. For several nights filled with whiskey, Faulkner creates a bond of friendship with barman John Clark. Together the two men wander about life and the paths she takes.
