An aspiring oil painter is devastated when her husband, a talented poet and her former professor, develops Semantic Dementia. As he begins to lose the semantic meanings of words and objects, painting becomes a way for him to recall mental pictures without the mediation of language. A silent rivalry soon develops as his paintings start to garner attention.
