This documentary is a portrait of Wellington art-dealer Peter McLeavey, who spent over forty years running his influential Cuba Street gallery.

In the film, McLeavey talks about his life: a roving North Island railway childhood, an early love of art, discovering his New Zealand identity while living in London, and returning home to run over 500 exhibitions (including key showcases of artists such as Toss Woollaston, Gordon Walters and Colin McCahon) initially from his flat.
