Filmmaker Mitra Farahani presents this intimate portrait of reclusive artist Bahman Mohassess, who went from being hailed as a national treasure in his homeland of Iran to having his work censored and destroyed by the country's increasingly oppressive government. Later fleeing to Italy to live a more simple life, the mercurial painter shocked the art community by destroying many of his own works after growing deeply disillusioned with modern society. Decades after hanging up his brush, however, Mohassess returned to the canvas to complete a commission piece, and found inspiration where he least expected it.
