An editing tour de force that must be experienced on the big screen. Jean Marc Calvet abandoned his family, robbed a Miami mobster, then hid out in Central America before descending into a drug-fuelled frenzy, painting the walls of his house like a man possessed. Now a successful artist who sells for five figures, Calvet sets out to make peace with his past.
