Poet Of The Wrong Generation
“It’s not that I don’t love you, and my tears
are yet to dry. But you can’t go back and forth
forever and we’ve already said goodbye.”
Through these words, a young poet unearths his musical soul while
severing ties with the woman he loves after her stunning betrayal.
Unknowingly, in writing this ballad of liberation, he will soon evolve as
one of the fastest rising stars on the pop music landscape.
The year is 1991; the place, New York City. Here we meet Johnny Elias,
a college student from Brooklyn with boundless adoration for two things
in life: timeless popular music, and the heart of a sweet, complicated young
woman who is clearly out of his league.
Megan Price not only is the object of Johnny’s affection, but also the
only daughter of New York’s most powerful PR woman: the indomitable
Projecting that her daughter’s boyfriend will never live up to the family
standard, Katherine cleverly perpetrates a series of duplicitous schemes to rid
Johnny from her high-class world. But in her callous disregard, she inadvertently
sets him on a determined course to his improbable musical destiny - while sending her own daughter spiraling down a path of devastation.
Poet of the Wrong Generation tells the symmetrical story of a lovable
underdog and his meteoric rise to stardom, his humiliating downfall and his
unprecedented attempt to reclaim his place as the unlikely musical spokesman
for his generation. At the heart of Poet is a tale of star-crossed lovers and their
struggle with unforeseen success and disillusionment, in an attempt to rediscover lasting harmony.
Uniquely integrating a variety of original song compositions, Poet projects
the epic clash between true contentment and the fable of stardom’s rewards; a
nostalgic journey through the major events of the1990s, with a cherished cast of
characters and a stunningly unpredictable conclusion.
