The director examines the enduring love between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse, Marianne Ihlen. Filmmaker Nick Broomfield chronicles their relationship, from the early days in Greece to how their love evolved when Leonard became a successful musician. The interviews are a tell-all of Cohen's concerts revealing the women in his life to be the source on many of his songs. It's a remarkable and rare portrait of a love that lasted a lifetime. He famously wrote to her not long before her death: "Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine."
