An intimate portrait of legendary artist and groupie, Cynthia Plaster Caster, of world renown for plaster-casting the penises of rock and roll's finest, including, most notoriously, Jimi Hendrix. In addition to providing a history of Cynthia's pursuits, the film documents the castings of two musicians, one shy, the other extroverted; also highlighted are the maddening preparations for her first gallery show in New York City. The film features candid interviews with rock stars, most of whom she has cast over the years (Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedys, Jon Langford of the Mekons, and Wayne Kramer of the MC5 to name just a few). The film goes beyond the mythology and asks the penetrating question "Is this really art?"
