Storyline

Five art students take their weekly painting classes for granted and see them as a harmless creative outlet until their shamanic teacher asks them to write an imaginary letter to artist Mark Rothko. They regard this as a mere creative exercise and a waste of time since it does not involve any actual painting or drawing. However, eventually their reactions to his request indicate he is seeking to dislodge and disturb the creative processes buried within their subconscious. Written by Eddie Saint-Jean
