What kind of person was Marcell Breuer, known as a designer in Europe and an architect and professor overseas, up-close? Companions and prominent artists remember the collaborations between him and his bold clients, recalling the progressive social milieu that supported the creation of his funky, iconic buildings. The film also exposes the personal stories of those who stuck by the homes he designed. Famous politicians, popular artists and a beloved architect: utopist dreamers.
