Renowned American born and bred artist Allan Brightwall is struggling to construct the perfect paintings for a perfect art display to be held in Paris, France.

He has moved his son and himself to the City of Love in the Country of Malice and is finding strong competition with a Mexican born and bred artist named Leronzo Petit'.

What follows is the great Allan Brightwall's descent into madness and destruction dragging his obediant, loving idolizing son Cameron along with him.

They find themselves soon aligned with a strange German born and bred artist situated in France whom produces artwork out of murder, a drug addled group of artists whom leave the duo on a very strange 24 hour mind trip, the residence of Allan's estranged brother and Cameron's uncle and finally the care of a female artist and her daughter whom offer salvation... to one of them.
