The documentary Daddy and the Muscle Academy is the story of gay artist Tom of Finland. The viewer is treated to hundreds of vividly rendered portraits of male models, ranging from Drummer Daddies to fellow artists. Tom's sketches and paintings are grouped by subject matter, with emphasis on various forms of fetishism. The film includes interviews with the artist's models, associates and intimates, not to mention a dramatized journey into 'Tom's soul'.
