Synopsis: A mediocre artist and his friend survive mostly by shoplifting and living frugally. One day, a man appears from a hole in a wall of their room and announces that he had come from the future to meet the greatest artist that has ever lived. But he doesn't recognize any of the paintings the artist has at home, and they are not even close to the quality they are supposed to be.
