In the first feature length documentary financed from inception by New Line, veteran 60 Minutes filmmaker Harry Moses investigates both controversy and culture in the world of high-priced artworks. When a 73-year-old former truck driver with an eighth grade education buys a thrift shop painting for five dollars, she has no idea that it would pit her against the highest and mightiest denizens of the art world. But when the painting in question might possibly be the work of American art icon Jackson Pollock and worth over $50 million, she's off on a rollicking adventure and a 15-year fight with the art world that paints a vivid picture of how art is bought and sold in America

This is not about Jackson Pollock but just one , if ever proven true, one of his paintings. It's all about the debate between two groups: the owner plus her coterie of forensic experts and an ex-con trying to revive his tarnished career in the art world and on the other side, the so-called art connoisseurs who insist on "provenance" to establish the authenticity of the painting. I am inclined to follow ............ . I think you'd rather watch it yourself and make your own conclusion. Highly entertaining!
