Keith Haring, pillar of the gay underground scene of New York, always seemed convinced he would die young, and in the little time he had he threw himself in the creation of playful works of art that were filled with symbolism and accessible to all. This powerful and moving film interviews his friends (Kenny Sharf, Yoko Ono, Tony Shafrazi and many others) and traces the life of an exceptional artist, dead at 31.
