Artist Florentijn Hofman is conquering the world with his huge, iconic and witty sculptures. He is famous for his creation of the ‘Rubber Duck’. This inflatable duck has been floating in the waters of Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Osaka and Sao Paulo.

Critically acclaimed by the general public, Florentijn lacks recognition within the art world. This film shows Hofman at work. What is more important to him, his commercial success or the acknowledgement of art critics? And does he remain faithful to his own ideas despite the pressure of the people who finance his works?
