Sam Trench is a reporter who excitedly narrates as he believes to see Pablo Picasso approaching, but soon finds himself narrating a race between Kandinsky, Braque, Mondrian, Chagall, Ernst, Miró, Dufy, Nicholson, Pollock, Buffet, Brâncuși, Géricault, Léger, Delaunay, de Kooning, Kokoschka, Paul Klee, and Schwitters. However, Trench reports no sign of Picasso.
