In the film, Amy plays artist Margaret Keane whose paintings gained fame under the name of her husband Walter Keane. After years of silence, Margaret slapped Walter with a slander suit that went to trial. Things finally came to a head when Margaret challenged Walter to a paint-off during a hearing to prove who was truly behind the paintings, which are known for featuring over-sized, doe-eyed children.
