Based on extensive research and historical fact, Burns life at the height of his fame from 1784 to 1788 is portrayed as spontaneous, passionate, and sexual. Told in the present tense through multiple viewpoints, Burns story is a frank and moving portrait of a man often misguided by the witching voice that motivated him—a drive composed of the same charms, demons, and shortcomings that nurtured his remarkable gifts.
