A bizarre accident causes an unambitious and unassuming local council worker to become a crazed visionary, obsessively and repeatedly depicting the same scene using whatever materials and canvasses come to hand; ultimately the entire interior of his suburban bungalow. Discovered by two Outsider Art collectors he becomes a notable figure of contemporary art yet ends his days homeless and alone, an anonymous visitor to his one-time home, which is finally being exhibited in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern. Under the intense summer sun on the Essex coast a gull falls from the sky and strikes an unassuming local council worker sitting on the beach below. From that moment on he is obsessed, a crazed visionary repeatedly depicting the scene and the unknown figure within in it which filled his view at the moment of impact. The mysterious beauty of his creations draw others to him but can they lay hold of that which possess him? And what of his anonymous muse?
