A film about the making of "Fitzcarraldo"--Werner Herzog's eccentric piece about a fanatic determined to build an opera house in the Andean jungle. The project itself seemed doomed from the start as Herzog's entire production was marred with bad luck, interrupted by unforseen obstacles, and challenged by the forces of nature.
