To be an artist is to turn any object into a magical one.  That mission could easily define the life and work of Peruvian artist Jorge Eielson.  Considered by many to be one of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century (poet, novelist, painter, performer), Eielson was also one of the most reclusive and mysterious.  After winning the National Poetry Prize at the age of 21, and Theater Prize at the age of 25 in his homeland of Peru, Eielson left for Europe.  Few knew what became of him.  The trip turned into a long exile and his name, slowly, became a myth.  Filmmaker Gaby Yepes takes us on a journey of discovery as she tries to find the man behind the art.
