This theatrical-release documentary explores the world of Auckland ‘outsider artist’ Susan King. Susan stopped talking when she was four. Her grandmother
recognised the little girl’s talent for drawing and kept her supplied with coloured pencils and paper. Today, the dealer world has discovered Susan’s art brut. A series of exhibitions have garnered international demand for Susan’s art, but leaves an ethical quandary for the family who can only guess at Susan’s wishes.
