Description: This study of autistic-savant musician Richard Peterson was 10 years in the making. Piecing together 8mm home movies, television shows and original footage, the documentary tells the bittersweet story of how this singular Seattle musician evolved from orphanage to the recording studio. With his unique cache of obsessive-compulsive habits and irresistible fetishes for Johnny Mathis and the music from the television show 'Sea Hunt,' Peterson's story is a testament to the wonderful unpredictability of life. The film's climax is Richard's deeply emotional reunion with Jeff "Son of Sea Hunt" Bridges.
