Not a Still Life is a portrait of Steve Stone, an older gay, Jewish man who shares the naked truth of the struggles, joys and sorrows of his unconventional life. With raw honesty, Steve tells of childhood ridicule in the 50’s, coming out and living openly gay during the homophobic decades of the 60s to the 80s, finding true love, and dealing with tragedy and loss, loneliness and aging. His gradual evolution includes embracing sobriety, connecting with a long lost relative and discovering his spirituality— only to find that he is in danger of losing his home and business. It is a film about a man in search of his identity and a sense of belonging. This one man's story taps into themes that encompass all our lives. His unique reflections stimulate argument and provide us with a most unique understanding of ourselves.
