Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollock?

When salty long-haul trucker Teri Horton bought a $5 painting at a thrift store to cheer up a friend, she thought it looked more like a traffic accident than a piece of art. Her friend agreed, but when she put it in a garage sale, a local art teacher suggested it looked an awful lot like a genuine Jackson Pollock, the famous avant garde painter whose works routinely sell in the upper millions of dollars. Teri's first comment inspired the title of this thoroughly entertaining documentary that follows her progress as she attempts to convince a snooty art world that she has discovered a bona fide masterpiece. So has she?
