The film is a story of art, true love and triumph over darkness.  Australian artist, David Bromley was a lost soul, until he found that art appeased the voices in his head and helped him find beauty in the world again.

We go into the world of this prominent artist and peel the layers of his intimate journey.  Interviews with friends, critics and musicians add perspective and insight on creative process, mental health and commercialisation of art.

David Bromley lived in Noosa and Peregian for 5 years in the mid-eighties.  Always a painter and collector, he had a stall at the Eumundi markets where he sold pottery among other things.

Ratbag, larrikin, outlaw of art, David Bromley is a unique and playful character, unquestionably an exceptional personality possessed of a colourful sense of drama, dash and vigour. Observing his life, art practice, and resilience makes for an entertaining couple of hours. – Richard Cotter, Sydney Arts Guide
