The first trailer for indie drama "" has been released, showcasing the imagining of a famed novel of the same title by prominent Beat poet Jack Kerouac. Overall, the trailer is studded with elegant shots of open terrain and beautiful vintage settings.

With old songs played as the backsound, the serious-toned video also highlights Kerouac's life as he spirals into depression during his move from New York to Northern California. Portraying the legendary poet is Jean-Marc Barr, who is at one point seen letting out his anger to God when speaking to a woman.
