A fictional meeting between two of the 20th century's most fascinating artists -- Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and American poet Sylvia Plath -- is imaginatively explored in Néstor Caballero's Musas. Though Kahlo and Plath never met in real life, this drama depicts their unique perspectives on art, love and death, as well as with their tumultuous relationships with painter Diego Rivera and English poet Ted Hughes, respectively. Musas is full of biographical details and references to the two dynamic women's lives, revealing portions of their distinct personal and creative paths that were each marked by a fatal destiny.

Anxious about the state of his relationship, Vincent impulsively stands up a date with his longtime girlfriend. He packs a suitcase full of his grandparents’ love letters and hops on a plane from Chicago to Paris – the very city where his grandparents lived and fell in love, embarking on a journey to find out if the love he imagines is possible.
