Billy Wolfram, an enigmatic thirty-eight- year-old star of the late -1980s New York art scene, views a show of Vel zquez paintings and is so humbled by their spiritual power that he suffers an emotional breakdown and retreats to his Chelsea loft. In seclusion, he recalls the most emblematic moments and figures of his childhood and early career as he searches to recover the spark of inspiration in his own work and life.
