Willard Wigan erzählt, wie eine schwere und einsame Kindheit ihn dazu brachte, seine einzigartige Fähigkeit zu entdecken – Kunst zu erschaffen, die so winzig ist, dass man sie nicht mit dem bloßen Auge sehen kann. Seine Diaschau von Figuren, die durch ein Mikroskop angesehen werden, kann nur als verblüffend bezeichnet werden.
