After his wife's death in 1973, poet and activist Steve Abbott came out of the closet and moved, with his three-year-old daughter, to San Francisco. There they discover a city bustling with gay men in search of liberation - few of whom have responsibility for a child. Steve throws himself into the city's vibrant poetry scene performing, publishing and building a community - sharing it all with Alysia. But he struggles to make a stable home, working incessantly, falling for bad boyfriends and constantly moving. Just when the two find happiness and Steve starts to get recognition for his work, the AIDS crisis hits. Steve, the once unlikely caregiver for his daughter, asks Alysia, at 21, to care for him. Revisiting her father's journals and writings, Alysia Abbott gives us an unforgettable portrait of 1970s and '80s San Francisco as well as a moving account of a daughter's love and a father's legacy.
