Filmmaker Lucia Small explores just what becomes of a dreamer as his life draws to a close and his ambitions go unfulfilled in an irreverent documentary set into motion when architect Glen Small charged estranged daughter Lucia with the task of penning his biography. As far back as Lucia could remember, her father Glen had been letting her and the rest of the world know in no uncertain terms just how much of a genius he really was. Yet despite the once-promising architect's undeniably impressive work, the damage caused by Glen at home seemed to negate any professional success in the eyes of his oft-neglected daughter. A rising star at the age of thirty-one, Glen now struggles simply to make his house payments. Now, as Lucia stages interviews with the peers, clients, former students, children, ex-wives, and former girlfriends of her egotistical father, the personal and professional details of Glen's life come together to paint a compelling portrait of unfulfilled ambition and familial dysfunction. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
