He never realized how far 35 millimeters would take him.
Famed writer/director John Waters chronicles America's most unlikely superstar photographer, Pecker, a Baltimore teenager who picks up a second-hand camera and starts snapping his way to stardom. Discovered by a savvy New York art dealer, Pecker's photographs, which highlight his obsessive girlfriend and her fascist laudromat, his sister and her raunchy all-male strip bar and his other "culturally challenged" family members and friends, make him a nationwide sensation. But Pecker soon discovers that instant over-exposure has its downside and he must make a fateful choice between his life and his art. Boasting a wickedly fun soundtrack, Pecker proves that "John Waters hasn't lost his taste for outrageous humor!"
