SynopsisTwo artists in search of inspiration discover something more.

Photographer Joel wasn’t expecting to see the woman of his dreams, but there she was, artist Helena, sketching in front of him. Joel is mesmerized by Helena’s beauty until their eyes meet, then he panics and leaves.

Joel confides with Kerry about the incident as he works on his portrait series. Meanwhile, Helena uses their chance meeting as inspiration for her own work.

Joel discovers Helena’s gallery opening is the same night as his and makes a bold move with a newly inspired photo series. Joel makes a surprise appearance at Helena’s show and discovers her secret crush on him.

Wow! This is really a treat. Fargo FF was cool but this is icing on the cake.
