In this documentary, art world experts and childhood friends offer an intimate portrayal of the internationally acclaimed artist. The film weaves together a portrait of an artist who is not easily defined by including footage of her visual work and performance art, as well as personal stories from Scott herself. Scott uses her artistic talents to draw in her audience with beauty and humor before the viewer can realize that she might be addressing such subjects as genocide, racism, and rape.
