Description by OLDIES.com:

Postwar America was a time of status quo, a conventional era at which three unconventional people thumbed their noses, lives foreshadowing the social and sexual upheavals of the 1960s: Jack Kerouac. Carolyn Cassady. And Neal Cassady, the free spirit who became the heroic model for Kerouac's landmark novel On the Road.

Nick Nolte, Sissy Spacek and John Heard star in writer/director John Byrum's atmospheric portrait of the trio that marched to the sound of the Beat Generation before it was labeled by the media. In bringing to heartfelt big-screen life this poignant three-way love affair, each star gives an impressively revealing performance. All roads in mainstream America once led to tract homes just like those in Heart Beat. But Jack, Carolyn and Neal threw that road map away.

Product Description:

The "Beat" in the title refers to the 'beat' poets of the 1950s, in this story of the relationship between Jack Kerouac and Neal and Carolyn Cassady. Nick Nolte, Sissy Spacek and John Heard star in a tale of redefining relationships during the cultural shift from the staid 50s to the experimental 60s.
Directed by John Byrum (1984's THE RAZOR'S EDGE) and written by Carolyn Cassady.
