Summary:An imagined journey through the life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

The imagined life story of Frida Kahlo opens and closes on her deathbed, taking us through a kaleidoscope of memories and hallucinations. Her life as a painter begins after her accident. She bears the wounds of her body and spirit with stark pride, transcending all limitations, wrapping her senses around the events of her past, even scorning her lover, Diego Rivera, for his limited vision, until she is swept away by her own senses. A bold interpretation of the life of an artist from the award-winning, highly acclaimed poet and author of 'Lithium for Medea' among others.
