Plot Synopsis:

Did Nick Ray leave Hollywood, or did Hollywood leave him? What was he up to when he returned to the States after a decade in Europe? What was his intention with We Can't Go Home Again, that experimental film he made with a bunch of college students? What was he doing with so many images on the screen all at once? How did he do it? Why was the film never finished? Did he lose his way, his talent, his sanity, his common sense? Don't Expect Too Much, a full-length documentary helmed by Ray's wife Susan, investigates these questions and the relationship forged by Ray between his life and his art. Drawing on the director's archive of never-before-seen film, video, and stills, Susan finds answers to our questions about Nick Ray in Nick Ray's own words and images. And we learn from interviews with members of the original crew of We Can't Go Home Again, directors Jim Jarmusch and Victor Erice, and others, how this man lived, saw, learned, and taught, how he fought and danced with his demons, how he loved.
