Without Getting Killed or Caught tells the story of Guy Clark, the dean of Texas songwriters, who struggles to write poetic songs while balancing a complicated marriage with wife Susanna, and a deep friendship with Townes Van Zandt, on whom Susanna forged a passionate dependence. Narrated in Susanna’s voice by Academy Award-winner Sissy Spacek, the documentary follows the trio as they rise from obscurity to reverence: Guy, struggling to establish himself as the Dylan Thomas of American music, while Susanna pens hit songs and paints album covers for top artists, and Townes spirals in self-destruction after writing some of Americana music’s most enduring and influential ballads.
