Enter new Art teacher Dina Delsanto, an acclaimed and passionate artist who is struggling with rheumatoid arthritis. Dinas cold and tortured demeanor ignites a spark in Jack.

A playful romantic comedy, this drama explores the rocky terrain of relationships capturing the passion and the inspiration behind both the words and the pictures.
