A once-celebrated and now nearly forgotten artist has been working in seclusion for years, supported by his high-school drop-out daughter. When he is rediscovered and launched to fame, questions are provoked: Who gets to define which art is good? Can one divorce the art from the artist? Who owns a work of art? Undercurrents of social injustice and hypocrisy run beneath this drama filled with biting humor and tragedy, all set in the complex realities of the New York art world.
