Together, Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe would influence the art world with Mapplethorpe's infamous images of the gay/S&M underworld and Wagstaff's multi-million dollar collecting mania. Told by confidantes, including singer Patti Smith, Crump's debut film explores the two men's symbiotic relationship, professionally, personally and artistically.
