Summary
In this thought-provoking documentary, the director tracks the overnight celebrity of Marla Olmstead, a toddler who creates gallery-worthy paintings on the dining room table of her family home. A media sensation by age four, critics compare her work with Jackson Pollock. Sales of her paintings reach $300,000. But, sadly, the bubble bursts. When a 2005 profile by "60 Minutes" suggests that Marla had help making her paintings, the finger is pointed at her father, an amateur artist. Almost overnight, her family is ensnared in a web of accusation and denial, with the burden of proof placed squarely in their lap: Is Marla a child prodigy or an innocent victim of a hoax?
