Art Kaufman writes and records an entire song (lyrics excluded) in just under an hour.

A feature-length documentary about the sometimes unsettling (but always fascinating) world of the song-poem industry. In this little-known subculture, ordinary people send in their heartfelt (but often bizarre) poems to companies that (for a fee) turn them into full-fledged musical productions.
