Bob & Roberta Smith, in reality one person called Patrick Brill who has become renowned for his humorous, opinionated, polemical art works. He occupies a unique position in the art world as an outsider who is a Trustee of the Tate Gallery, an artist whose work is found in The Guardian and major galleries but also in the small unheralded spaces, and often works in a shed in his garden in Leytonstone.

What distinguishes Bob from the mainstream contemporary art world is his commitment to the idea that art is a vital part of democracy, and that art itself must be democratic. The film follows Bob over 3 years providing a unique insight into one of Britain's most important artists at work, reflecting on art and the role it plays in society today.
