An artist, his student and their model fall and find themselves in love with each other. The bohemian characters struggle to be themselves while they are pushed from without by social mores and from within by personal desires. Their emotions are explored as they recollect their courtship in hopes of finding the basis for their unfulfilled dreams.
Like all of us they have problems with relationships, social acceptance and love. (Sometimes, it's so damnably inconvenient to be in love.) There is an undercurrent of bisexuality. These are ordinary people performing extraordinary emotional acrobatics. You must learn to follow your heart, even if you must fall into the arms of a madman.
