Plot Summary

For years, Ushio Shinohara has been one of the leading, and most under- appreciated, alternative artists in Japan and New York City with an wildly esoteric style. For many of those years, his wife, Noriko, has been a faithful companion to this idiosyncratic man, but grew wanting to be more. This film covers the relationship of this special couple as Ushio struggles for commercial success on his own terms. Additionally, we follow Noriko pursuing her own artistic vision with her semi-autobiographical line art project that reveals much about her own soul as eloquently as her husband's work.

Quotes Ushio Shinohara: Life is wonderful. Life should be positive. When it's blown to pieces, that's when it becomes art. Art is messy and dirty when it pours out of you. The New York Times once said "Shinohara is amazing." Listen... Brother... Why do I... It makes me cry. I believe in my career goddamn it. Why do I have to? I want to cry. I've got nothing. Listen to me! This is so hard... And it's so fantastic... Now I've got nothing. You see... We are the ones suffering the most from art...
