A superstar in the art world, but little known outside, why does Eva Hesse continue to excite passions? Along with creating a significant and deeply influential body of work during her short life, her story overlaps some of 20th century's most intriguing moments: Germany in the 1930's, New York's Jewish culture of immigration in the 1940's and the art scene in Manhattan and Germany in the 1960's. Hesse, one of the most important 20th century artists, is finally revealed in this character-driven film that is an emotionally gripping and inspiring journey of an artist of uncommon talent, and a woman of extraordinary courage.
