In the heart of Mumbai lives Sheikh Rehman, the city's last painter of film posters. His studio is run in the old masters' style - behind the screen of an old Hindi-Film cinema. Here, Rehman is both artist and guru, comedian and philosopher. But Rehman's world is at risk. Today's film posters are printed on plastic, and his audiences are being kept away by new high-rise buildings. It's a hopeless struggle, but Rehman won't give up ... Original Copy - a sensitive portrayal of the magic of film, its transience, and its immortality.
