Who is he? Sean Hillen. An artist with Asperger, "a collagist" as he calls himself, living on disability benefit in a place that is the embodiment of the mess. He was born in 1961 at the time of "The Troubles" – a military conflict in Northern Ireland that had initially become the basis of his art. A scared teen, raised in love and tenderness, hiding behind his camera lens from the ruthless, cruel reality of Ireland, at war he was. He knew the photos wouldn't get published so he started rearranging them, combining with other pictures – and that's how he finally came up with his own unique style: a combination of his photos, postcards, posters figures and out-of-this-world images creating a complex and bizarre image bore its fruit, being published on the books and magazine covers. However, at one point everything went wrong: associated with the military conflict, Sean got left behind at the peaceful times. This is where the documentary picks him up – selling his original pieces on the market next to the fruits and vegetable stalls, he lives in his tiny hoarded house, struggling desperately with money, Asperger and not being able to work anymore.
The documentary follows Sean's journey towards artistic resurrection. Along the way, he finally declutters his studio, sorts out the stuff that he was piling up for years, meets Amy – an artist from Chicago with whom he had a genuine connection, and goes from stagnation and inability to create new art to getting a second wind. The documentary is vivid, flighty, sometimes chaotic – just like Sean himself. The narrative, camerawork and sound correspond to Sean's way of thinking – "butterfly mind" he calls it. The thoughts fly from one object to another, rarely focusing on anything solid, preferring to look for some abstract matters.
