Michael Scott was arguably Ireland's greatest 20th Century architect. It would be difficult to assess Ireland's 20th Century cultural heritage without highlighting Scott's contribution and vision. He was an exceptionally creative man in a country that he described as 'visually illiterate'.

He was a man who loved Ireland and the arts, especially the visual arts. This film, directed by his only daughter, Ciarin Scott, explores his controversial life and how his drive and vision brought contemporary visual arts to Ireland, on a whole new level.
