In the 1950s, Margaret Ulbrich leaves her then husband and takes her young daughter Jane to North Beach, San Francisco, where she gets a job painting illustrations at a furniture factory. While doing portraits at an outdoor art show, she meets Walter Keane, who sells paintings of Parisian street scenes, but makes his money in real estate. Soon they become close friends. Margaret is distraught when her husband asks for custody as part of divorce settlement. Walter proposes, and they marry and honeymoon in Hawaii. She retains custody of Jane. Unable to get his or Margaret’s paintings into a fine art gallery, Walter convinces the owner of a popular jazz club, Enrico Banducci, to rent him some wall space to exhibit their work. He is frustrated when the designated space is in the back by the bathrooms. He fights with Banducci and puts the man’s head through one of Margaret’s canvases.

This becomes a front-page story in a local newspaper, which packs the club with people curious to see the art that made grown men fight. Dick Nolan, a celebrity gossip columnist, wants to know more about the artwork, but proceeds to ask about Margaret’s paintings of young girls with big eyes. Walter goes along with the misunderstanding, failing to clarify that they are Margaret’s creation. Afterward, he shows Margaret how much money he made selling her work and suggests they team up, with her staying at home painting and him taking credit and handling publicity and sales. Walter opens his own gallery selling Margaret’s art, and eventually hits on the idea of making cheap reproductions of Margaret’s works, which sell in huge numbers. The family moves into a mansion. Walter spends his time hobnobbing with celebrities while Margaret is stuck at home, feeling increasingly isolated. He even makes Margaret lie to Jane about who is doing the paintings.
