This documentary traces the journey of fifteen young, talented New York Artists to Berlin, as they meet and join forces with their German counterparts. Together, the American and German artists explore artistic ideas and concepts while collaborating on original projects that push conventional boundaries. Original musical scores and animated artwork complement and enhance this provocative examination of western contemporary art and the ongoing tension between commercialism and creativity for its own sake.

In a climate where everyone seems obsessed with market failures, including the art market, it is refreshing to witness a group of artists whose sole motivation is their desire to challenge their creativity.
The film's animated sequences , including stop motion photography, capture the raw and edgy vibe of Berlin's Wedding neighborhood, and portray Berlin as a place of magical possibility.
Fan's of punk rock's d.i.y. ethics will watch with glee as the Antagonist's turn an apartment block into an art installation, and the streets of Berlin into an art gallery.
The soundtrack includes music by some of New York undiscovered greats.
If you are looking to re-calibrate your cynical view of the art world this might be the perfect movie.
