Nik Worth is an eccentric musician with a huge catalog of recordings but little success.  Yet he has created an alternate life history for himself, complete with newspaper clippings, reviews and album covers.  Nik’s sister Denise is his most loyal listener and the narrator of the story.  Not only is this a realistic portrait of a sibling relationship but a unique look at outsider art and maintaining your artistic identity in the face of a fame obsessed society.
