Before entire networks were built on populist personalities and reality morphed into a TV genre, the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey, Jr. In the late '80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following and the title, "Father of Trash Television." This film dissects the mind and motivation of television's most notorious agitator.
