Synopsis:The life story of Richard McDaniel. He was a baby and a teenager just like you and me but what separates him from all the rest is his photography. At the age of ten, his father, a already established photographer gave him his camera. Richard immediately enjoyed the feeling of the camera in his hands, already knowing that this would be his passion. When he turned 18, he filled out a draft form, only to be sent into World War 2 less than a year later.
This is where Richards' career begins. He takes photos of the sights around him including his fellow soldiers, training grounds and the little bit of war he sees. After being shot in the arm, he is honorably discharged from the United States army and sells the photos of war to his fathers' old boss and friend, Mr.McReynolds. His father passes soon after. To recover from the pain he decides to try cocaine. Richard becomes quickly addicted and later takes remarkable photos using his addiction in the favor of his art.
Richard soon must face his problem but also be on the risk of losing his talent.
