“Art, I believe; help thou mine unbelief”
As Peter Fuller, one of the most controversial art critics of all time, prepares for fatherhood by going through psychoanalysis to overcome his demons, escaping the shadow of his evangelical father. The art world of the 70s and 80s was moving so fast with the advent of modern technology, Peter and his childhood friend Michael are forging a name for themselves, the two develop a friendship with the Revolutionary art critic John Berger, which changed the course of all their lives and sent ripples throughout the art world which are still being felt today. Peter’s life was tragically cut short by a car crash in 1990, but his spirit lives on and his son survived the crash to tell the tale.
