    Introduction by Liis Pählapuu.

    Gertrude, Leo and Michael Stein: Americans in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century, they were among the first to acquire works by Matisse, Picasso and Juan Gris, and contributed to their notoriety on both sides of the Atlantic.
    The documentary tells the saga of the Steins and their illustrious collection, a story told with joyous complicity as it follows fifty years of family history.
    At its centre is the radically modern writer and talented chronicler Gertrude Stein, whose name became synonymous with avant-garde art collecting.
