This documentary tells the extraordinary story of a rural Baptist minister with a sixth grade education who late in life received a vision instructing him to "paint sacred art". Moving from the pulpit to a makeshift studio in northwest Georgia, he began creating work that, within a few short years, would become a sensation in the rarified world of contemporary art, as well as in popular culture. Howard Finster is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential self-taught artists of the 20th century.
