Plot Synopsis

In 1990, Dennis Barrie, the director of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts center is arrested by the local sheriff who deemed that the exhibit of controversial photographer Robert Maplethorpe's work was obscene and pornographic. Barrie's firm belief in the individual's right to choose and view art in his own way motivated him to testify in his own defense-a public fight to uphold the integrity of the First Amendment.
