A lonely artist living in a luxurious palace with her emotionally distant architect husband finds herself forced to choose between a life of empty comfort or an existence of infinite unpredictability when her dying passions rekindled by a mysterious free spirit. To the outsider Jean (Kelsey Oldershaw) has everything a woman could ever want in life; a beautiful home, a wealthy husband, and as much time as she needs to create her art. But Jean's husband Paul (Horatio Ledon) is simply unable to meet his wife's emotional needs, leaving her open and susceptible to the charms of the joyously unpredictable Viggo (Andy MacKenzie). As Jean is increasingly drawn in to Viggo's carefree world where every desire is met and emotions burn white hot, she finds that she must learn to find a happy middle ground somewhere between passion and predictability.
