While in prison for six years, artist Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art which he smuggles out piece-by-piece, only seeing them in totality upon coming home. His work captivates the art world's attention as he struggles to rebuild his life outside. Jesse’s journey lays bare art as the ultimate act of resistance. The story unfolds through verité, interviews, and animation co-created by the filmmakers with Jesse Krimes.
