The incredible, inspirational true story of artist Justin Wadlington.
After a tragic accident rendered him blind in his left eye at age 5, Wadlington developed a unique artistic ability without any formal art training. In spite of growing up without parents during a turbulent childhood in inner city Philadelphia, he taught himself how to paint on canvas and over the years gained notoriety on social media, eventually selling his artwork to world-famous celebrities and art collectors.
