The nineteen sixties and seventies were not only a turbulent time for America, but for a whole generation of America's youth as well. From the heights of Viet Nam to the birth and death of the Hippie movement, from the madness of the Chicago Convention to the surreal years leading to Watergate, the community that was America began to dissolve. For Keith Neal the emotional disconnect began in his youth, and his sense of loss was destined to overwhelm him...until he found his expression and his connection to the humanity around him through poetry. It was his voice Keith's story is one of separation, and ultimately tells the tale of the tragedy of our times and our inability to remember that we... Americans... humans...are more than individual organisms fighting to gain the most toys, but we are a species that requires connections... associations...community. Keith's story is the story of our times.
