Born in 1929, Zdzisław Beksiński, a Polish surrealist painter, is a gentle man with arachnophobia, despite his hardcore sexual fantasies and his fondness for painting disturbing dystopian works. Beksiński is a family man who wants only the best for his loving wife Zofia, neurotic son Tomasz and the couple's aging mothers. His daily painting to classical music eventually pays off and he makes a name for himself in contemporary art. The film received Golden Lions at 41st Gdynia Film Festival for Best Film.
