Once described by Kurt Cobain as "the greatest songwriter on earth", Daniel Johnston is a man whose life has been defined not only by his musical talent but by his struggle with mental illness.

Exploring the sometimes chaotic mix of genius and madness, this insightful documentary looks at the music and the man behind it in an attempt to understand how mental illness has shaped Daniel’s life and the lives of those around him.
