Fake or Fortune?

Giacometti

Season 7, Episode 5 of 5

Alberto Giacometti's Pointing Man figure sold for $141m at auction in New York in 2015, making it the most expensive sculpture ever sold. Could a stark, white square of plaster that has been passed down through an English family with art world connections be one of Giacometti's earliest and most daring works?
