35 years after first playing Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant, John reprises the role for this belated sequel, covering Crisps later years as a 'resident alien' in New York City. Enjoying his new found fame, Quentin Crisp is invited to America to lecture on How To Be Happy, and falls in love with New York's more permissive ambience.
