Ranging from the wicked noir Shanghai of 1946 to the echo chambers of Hollywood to remote, snow-covered mountains, Stuart Archer Cohen's This Is How It Really Sounds follows three men, each in search of a different life.
Small-town Alaskan "Harry" Harrington is a legend in a small circle, once the world's greatest extreme skier, racing avalanches and knocking backflips off of cliffs. Peter Harrington is a world-famous financier, hated across the globe for making hundreds of millions of dollars on his hedge fund and fleeing New York to begin a new venture in Shanghai. Finally there is Pete Harrington, a middle-aged rock star now touring third-tier venues and fleeing bankruptcy but hoping that one great new song can rescue him. All are seeking something that has slipped away - youth, power, purpose, magic; all are wonderful creations whose strangely familiar lives and dreams become unforgettable.
Mingling wickedly funny satire with heart-stopping adventure, This Is How It Really Sounds explores the seductive power of the unlived life and what happens when you finally grasp it.
