Mercedes lives for art. Her mother is a famous sculptor, and since she was a small child Mercedes has dreamed of following in her mother's footsteps. But it's hard living in the shadow of a legend. And when Mercedes's application at a prestigious art school is rejected, she is devastated and walks away from her art.
