“Plastic Man is a film about an unlikely artist, a bail bondsman from a long line of Jewish tough guys, who has that artist gene -- the one that makes art inevitable- and touches people with ones art.

“An inspiring portrait of the artist as an older man, Plastic Man is a crowd-pleaser from its whimsically enigmatic opening sequence to its triumphant finale.
