Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
In 1978 New York artist and filmmaker Hugues de Montalembert's world went black. Viciously assaulted by two men who had broken into his apartment looking for money, de Montalembert's vision was forever darkened when one of the thieves threw a vial of paint thinner in his face. In the painful days that followed, de Montalembert's brain refused to accept his fate, processing powerful images that would motivate him to take control of his fate and overcome his handicap. In this film from director Gary Tarn, de Montalembert tells his tale of loss, anger, and hope in his own terms.
