The night of the big fight, Michael and Ana had no communication till six months later. Hearing Michael's painting career was on the downslide, Ana took pity on him and hired him to paint the studio apt. they shared for four years - to prepare it to sell. She leaves for a couple days, to find he had indeed painted. But not the color she left. The images covering every wall, celling and fixture catapults them into a passionate, poetic, and volatile reunion - battle - driven by an unquenchable thirst only they together can satisfy. All happens to the beat of the live congero on stage - who charts the beats of their drumming hearts.

Passionate reunion of a couple, where art is more than just painting on a wall. A live conga player charts the beats of their hearts.
