"Carey's universe may be set in blue-collar New England, but out of that backdrop, we find a man very much like ourselves trying to hold on to what everyone loses eventually--his children as they grow up, his parents, long-time friends, perhaps, most important of all, his sense of where he thought he was going to be when he was young and what life is for him now." -Maria Mazziotti Gillan - from the Foreword.

All That Lies Between Us is a journey through the life of one New Jersey poet and her mission to keep poetry alive in her native city of Paterson and beyond. Maria Mazziotti Gillan's story is a true American tale: the daughter of Italian immigrants she rose out of poverty to become a force in the poetry world and an inspiration to writers everywhere.
"When this fascinating documentary is over you understand that if there were a country called Poetry, Paterson would be its capital and Maria Mazziotti Gillan would be its president." Jeff Page, journalist/writer
"Paterson is lucky to call [her] a native daughter." Jim Haba, poet / producer of the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
