Profile of the great Canadian novelist, singer, songwriter who was well-known in his own country as a poet and then burst onto the world popular music scene scene in 1967. Leonard Cohen has inspired generations with his unique personality and haunting music, becoming one of the most original and enduring artists to emerge from the 1960s. Later in his life, he became a Zen Buddhist monk and lived at the Mt. Baldy Center outside Los Angeles. Many current acts like Nick Cave, Beth Orton, and U2 appear in this documentary, which was filmed mostly at a concert in Sydney Opera House honouring Cohen

In January, 2005; director Lian Lunson traveled to Sydney to film the historic "Came So Far For Beauty" show, a tribute to Leonard Cohen at the Sydney Opera House organized by famed music producer Hal Willner. Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man includes behind-the-scenes interviews and live performances from this event by Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Martha Wainwright, Beth Orton, Linda Thompson, Teddy Tompson, Jarvis Cocker, The Handsome Family, Julie Christensen and Perla Battala, as well as a special performance of "Tower of Song" by Cohen and U2. And in a series of candid interviews, Cohen himself reveals his trademark wry humor and soulful intensity, using his own artwork, poetry and personal collection of photographs to reflect upon his colorful past and his creative process.
