Long Description: 
This program is a portrait of one family's fall and redemption in the often brutal world of art. Family patriarch George is a professor and painter. Wife and mother Betty is a ceramicist who earns her own show at The Met. Charlie, their son, is a video artist. Most highly regarded is Francesca, their daughter, one of the late 20th century's most recognized photographers, whose fame came after a tragedy that would forever scar the family: her suicide at the age of 22.
