"BIG CITY DICK: Richard Peterson's First Movie" is the captivating journey into the world of a savant street musician, his lifelong search for love, and his struggle to find fame as a recording artist.
A street trumpeter and part-time guest on a local rock radio station, Richard fills his world with obsessions. This includes "Sea Hunt" (and the "Son of Sea Hunt", Jeff Bridges), the "Golden Age of Television" production music, (which inspires four albums/CDs produced with help from the Seattle music scene), stalking local TV celebrities, and a fanatical interest in Johnny Mathis. The unique relationship between Richard and Mathis (the Pop icon breaks his reclusive silence in the film) is the catalyst for one of Richard's most remarkable and heartfelt compositions, "Love on the Golf Course".
Between his street gigs and a stint as a piano player in a grunge club, mega-band "The Stone Temple Pilots" discovers Richard's music. Richard's moment in the spotlight is short-lived however, when he is confronted by the human cost of his obsessions, revealing the dark family secret he has lived with his entire life.
