This thought-provoking and amusing documentary focuses on the life and work of Wolfgang Beltracchi and his wife Helene, who for nearly four decades fooled the international art world with the biggest forgery scandal of the postwar era. Beltracchi created original works in the style of such masters as Max Ernst, Heinrich Campendonk and Max Pechstein, until a simple mistake led to the couple's arrest. As Beltracchi and his wife recount their extraordinary story with humor and candor, some profound questions arise: What makes a piece of art an original? And what makes a person an expert?
