Set in Washington DC, Isaiah, a Black painter, is on the brink of giving up when he meets Stevie, an intriguing beauty with big brains.
Isaiah’s creativity flows with Stevie in his life. They fall in love, but his work remains overlooked, bruising his ego. When Isaiah convinces a gallerist to take a chance on him, he pours himself into his art, which catapults his career, but doesn’t leave room for love. Frustrated, Stevie accepts a dream job in Chicago, breaking Isaiah’s heart.
A year passes without communication until Isaiah sees Stevie at his group show in Chicago. Though Isaiah’s life seems to have improved, it isn’t what he imagined without her.
