Artist and filmmaker David Lynch treats audiences to an intimate journey through the early decades of his life, starting with the artist in his studio today, painting alongside his young daughter. From his idyllic upbringing in small town America to his rebellious high school years in Philadelphia, viewers follow Lynch as he narrates his coming-of-age journey that eventually takes him from art school on the East Coast to the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, where he made his first feature, Eraserhead.
