“The film hit my heart and brain with such velocity that it literally made me sit on the edge of my seat.” – Aint It Cool News

“The art speaks for itself. We should listen.” – Austin Chronicle

One of the world’s greatest editorial cartoonists finds his acidic political critiques are too hot to handle in today’s increasingly cautious publishing marketplace. Editors who previously backed his controversial work are disappearing as fast as the newspapers which once employed him. Can an outspoken artist raise a family and maintain his unique defiant voice? This intimate documentary follows the artist as he struggles to stay true to his creativity in a world where biting satiric humor has an ever-diminishing commercial value. Pablo Bryant’s searing documentary thoughtfully examines the compromises a radical artist makes (or refuses to make).
