Lucy loves Shadow, even though she’s never met him. She knows he is her soul mate. She can see it in the scope and colour of his sprawling graffiti artworks. The city is his canvas and his friend Poet, adds just the right words.
No matter how she tries, Lucy cannot catch Shadow at work. He is as elusive as his name. Reality provides less appealing and far less romantic alternatives. Reality provides Ed, the high school dropout and paint store attendant. Not likely! She’s already been on a date with him and even though it was over a year ago, neither of them has forgotten how Lucy broke Ed’s nose.
