Maude Gutman has bought the ugliest thrift store painting she could get her hands on as a gag gift. After the painting is rejected, Maude tries to offload it at a yard sale where she learns it might be much more than junk--it just might be the "find of the century," an undiscovered Jackson Pollock painting.
