It is a compilation of images co-creator Frank Mouris had collected from magazines interwoven with two narrations, one giving a mostly linear autobiography and the other stating words having to do with the images, the story the first voice is relating, or neither. Frank made the film with Caroline Mouris. The soundtrack was conceived and created by Tony Schwartz.
