A documentary on the life of outsider artist/author Henry Darger, who, throughout his life, wrote a 15,000+ page novel (unofficially considered the longest book ever written) about the "Vivian Girls." The story of Darger and the mystery surrounding his life and unglamorous death is actually more interesting than the film itself, though it was a very clever choice by Yu to have Dakota Fanning do the narration.
