As the 20th century draws to a close, Maria is at the start of a life she never thought possible. She and Khalil are planning their wedding. They are the perfect couple, living together in a black bohemian enclave in Brooklyn. They've even landed a starring role in a documentary about 'new people' like them, who are blurring boundaries as a new era dawns. Everything Maria knows she should want lies before her - yet she can't stop daydreaming about another man. As fantasy escalates to fixation, it dredges up secrets from the past and threatens to unravel Maria's life.
