In 1981, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a 19-year-old graffiti artist living on the streets. Eight years later, he was a world-renowned painter -- and the tragic victim of his own addiction. This film chronicles his meteoric rise in New York's art world, his anguish over his family, and his hatred of a society that both courted and exploited him.
