The story of Marla Olmstead, a 4-year-old from upstate New York, who rocketed from obscurity to international renown. Compared to Kandinsky, Pollock and a "budding Picasso," she sold over $300,000 worth of paintings. Then five months into Marla’s new life as a celebrity (and halfway into the film’s production), a bombshell dropped. TV’s 60 Minutes aired an exposé, suggesting that it was her father, himself an amateur painter, who had done the work. American director Amir Bar-Lev suddenly found the direction of his documentary had changed.
