Comedy, Documentary

82-year-old Peter Anton has spent decades obsessively chronicling his life in a massive, illustrated autobiography titled "Almost There," and nothing - not poverty, isolation or crippling disabilities - will keep him from sharing his story with the world. Peter's work, which can be best described as "outsider" art (art created outside the cultural mainstream) was made in - and, at times, physically on - his current/childhood home in Northwest Indiana. But with his immediate family now dead, his house has fallen into squalor and his health is failing. What happens when Peter befriends us and we try to help him tell his story and get his work shown publicly for the first time forms the dramatic center of the film. This documentary delves into Peter's controversial art exhibit and documents the tumultuous transition he must make out of his childhood home. Along the way, the directors meet people in Peter's community who like them are compelled to help this charismatic yet curmudgeonly character survive, while asking: Why do they do it? What responsibilities do we have to those in need, and where should boundaries be drawn?
