Summary
Tracks the overnight celebrity of Marla Olmstead, a toddler who creates gallery-worthy paintings on the dining room table of her family home. Sales of her paintings reach $300,000. Then the bubble burst. When a 2005 profile by '60 minutes' suggests that Marla had help making her paintings, the finger is pointed at her father, an amateur artist and night manager at Frito Lay. Almost overnight, her family is ensnared in a web of accusation and denial - the burden of proof placed squarely in their lap. Is Marla a child prodigy or an innocent victim of a hoax?
