Howie, a seventy year old alcoholic and ex-sailor, sums up his life in the following terms: "Travel and drink, drink and travel, that's all I've ever done." The film HOWIE redefines its subject in terms of the present, documenting Howie's two-year hiatus in a small college town, his confrontations with the townspeople, and his relationship with the filmmaker. A fusion of narrative and documentary, HOWIE neither romanticizes its subject nor regards it as a specimen for analysis, but emerges as an expression of caring and a restitution of dignity.
