Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Doc Pomus penned such classics as "Save the Last Dance for Me," "This Magic Moment," Viva Las Vegas," and "Young Blood." Though paralyzed by childhood polio, he reinvented himself as a blues singer, then a songwriter, and led a dramatic and creative life, mentoring generations of younger artists, including Lou Reed, John Lennon and Phil Spector. Packed with interviews, music and rare archival imagery, this film features an array of celebrated musicians, family members, writers, and fans, including Dr. John, Ben E. King, Joan Osborne, Shawn Colvin, Dion, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and B.B. King.
