Every day, millions tune in to Sesame Street to see one of the world's most adored and recognizable characters - a furry red monster named Elmo. This is the story of the man behind the iconic puppet, Kevin Clash. Kevin had wanted to be a puppeteer since he was a teenager in the 1970s. More specifically, he wanted to be part of Jim Henson's team, the creative force responsible for delivering the magic of Sesame Street on a daily basis. With a supportive family behind him, Kevin made his dreams come true.

Combining amazing archival footage with material from the present day, this personal documentary explores Kevin's story in vivid detail and chronicles the meteoric rise of Jim Henson in the process. It has won numerous awards at film festivals, including a Special Jury Prize at Sundance 2011.
