A Man. His Buildings. His Secret Lives.

A riveting tale of love, art, betrayal and forgiveness - in which the illegitimate son of a legendary architect undertakes a worldwide exploration to discover his father's work and to understand the personal choices he made.

Louis I. Kahn is wildly considered to have been the most important architect of the second half of the twentieth century. While Kahn's artistic legacy was a search for truth and clarity, his personal life was secretive and chaotic. His mysterious death in a train station men's room left behind three families-one with his wife and two with women with whom he had long-term affairs. The child of one of these relationships, Kahn's only son Nathaniel, sets out on a journey to reconcile the life and work of this mysterious, brilliant man.

Revealing the haunting beauty of his father's monumental creations and taking us to the rarified heights of the world's most celebrated architects and deep within his own divided family, Nathaniel’s personal journey becomes a universal investigation of identity, a celebration of art and ultimately, of life itself.
