Inspired by the chaotic life of David Bowie during the making of the Low album released in 1977, this quirky, darkly comic drama by Sean Grundy takes a look into the mind of Bowie during his years in Berlin.

After leaving LA, which he later said had brought him to the edge of sanity, Berlin influenced his recovery and inspired him to create one of the 20th century's most iconic albums.
