Follow young Chloe Darke as she begins her career as a silversmith at Old Newbury Crafters; Iraqi war veterans Tom Pullin and Jeremiah Holland as they turn to art as an antidote to the harsh realities of war; and Albert Paley, master metal sculptor, who uses knowledge from his 50-year career to build monumental artworks for New York City's Park Avenue.
