Locked-up for six years in a federal prison, Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home. As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he adjusts to life outside, getting to know his young son, and living with the constant threat, due to his conditional release, that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.
