An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. Answering a dead man’s cell phone sends Jean on a comedic odyssey which forces her to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

Famed painter Rudolf Bauer sketched on scraps while in a Nazi prison, was saved by his lover, Guggenheim curator Hilla Rebay, and had an NYC museum built to house his art… until an incredible act of betrayal stopped him from painting. A shocking and moving story of powerful art and powerful passion.
