Martina Batan, an eccentric New Yorker, hires a private investigator to look into her brother's long unsolved, brutal murder. In the meantime she alternates between Manhattan and New Orleans, hoping to find herself in the life and art of the late Roy Ferdinand—an artist known for explicit depictions of his urban environment. The more Martina delves into her art excursions, the more entwined she becomes with her brother and difficult past in this riveting documentary. —Jamie Traner
