The Beautiful and Damned is composed of dialogue plucked from Book One. It is the story of misguided affection and the fragility of the human spirit, shedding light on the struggles of addiction, the dangers of losing oneself in illusions, and striving to survive in a modern age of jazz music. The story is told through a series of stylistically-varied vignettes involving the use of movement, shadow, and sound.
