Shepard & Dark tells the story of the unlikely decades-spanning friendship between Academy Award-nominated actor and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, Buried Child) and eccentric, reclusive deli clerk Johnny Dark. As the two men come together to publish their lifelong correspondence at the University of Texas Press - hundreds of eloquent handwritten letters dating back to the early 1960s - their shared memories, literary ties and one-time family bonds emerge in an indelible documentary portrait of a complex friendship rarely depicted on screen.
