Daniel Johnston, manic-depressive genius singer/songwriter/artist is revealed in this portrait of madness, creativity and love.

The oft-observed partnership between genius and insanity has never been as painfully apparent as in the case of the ultimate cult singer-songwriter, Daniel Johnston. The fact this recording artist can seemingly neither sing nor play any instrument to anything approaching conventional levels of competence may leave some questioning the genius element, but ardent admirers maintain that this manic-depressive reclusive, whose oeuvre has been largely recorded in his bedroom on C90s between stints in psychiatric institutions, is the van Gogh of the US folk art scene.
