Laura and Steve have been married a long time and have developed a dysfunctional relationship of which neither is conscious. An old friend comes to visit Laura and talk about old times. This leads to a series of dreams which Laura begins to paint in order to try to understand them. In discussing the paintings with her brother Theo, they begin to relive traumatic moments in their childhood. This process frees Laura to begin to become more aware of who she is and what she wants from life.
Laura — Middle-aged, married to Steve for nearly 25 years who is becoming restive in her submissive role in the marriage.
