Nora Eldridge has always been a good girl: a good daughter, colleague, friend, employee. She teaches at an elementary school where the children and the parents adore her; but her real passion is her art, which she makes alone, unseen.One day Reza Shahid appears in her classroom: eight years old, a perfect, beautiful boy.
