A madcap romp through the 1980s NYC downtown art scene through the lens of the colorful career of ambitious painter, Edward Brezinski, who is hell-bent on making it. Brezinski’s quest for fame provides an intimate portrait of the art world’s attitude towards success, failure, fame and fortune, notoriety, and erasure. Viewers are introduced to a series of eccentric characters who reveal the unsung painter through their memories of both Edward’s antics and his extreme artistic drive. Their tales also unveil the queerly rollicking history of the Lower East Side art movement from an insider’s point of view.
