This documentary follows the life path of Pieter van der Westhuizen – a well know South African painter. It displays his great talent and extraordinary adaptation to a life that was not without challenges, his fascination with Israel, failed marriages and the influence that his life tragedies had on creating the world that he chose to escape to through his art.

It is an artistic portrayal of a great man and his vision.
