20 YEARS OF MADNESS is a feature-length documentary following Jerry White Jr., founder of the Public Access TV Show 30 MINUTES OF MADNESS, as he leaves Los Angeles and returns to Metro Detroit to make a new episode of the show on its 20-year anniversary. Jerry reconnects with the friends he grew up with and is forced to confront years of resentment, rebuild burnt bridges, and balance challenging personalities as they discover whether the magic of their show was a fleeting youthful experiment or a creative community they will share for the rest of their lives.
