Is the true value of art in the eyes of the beholder? Maude (Julie Nihill), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an opp shop. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks its a Jackson Polock worth millions. In fact she's certain it is. But when world-class expert, Lionel Percy (John Wood), flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he really has no idea what he's about to discover.
Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is a comedy set in the present day.
