Synopsis
Sometimes, life inspires art, but sometimes…art inspires life FLOATING SUNFLOWERS tells the story of June (Anna Chlumsky, Emmy Nominee), a still-life painter, whose creative spirit has been handcuffed by the recent loss of her father. At the end of her rope, with seemingly no place left to turn for inspiration, she casts her recent imperfect paintings onto the curb like common trash. Meanwhile, we meet Henry (Francisco Solorzano), a fiction author, who is caught in an emotional winter of his own. Unable to tap into his creative spirit, Henry’s only respite is to pay tribute to his recently deceased fiancé, by casting sunflowers adrift into a pond in Central Park: an exercise that only proves to tether him tighter to his pain. All seems lost, when a simple twist of fate exposes Henry and June to the symbols of each others journey. Kindled by the similarities and differences of each others dilemma, they find themselves awash with new found inspiration, as they emerge from of the darkness, and – through only the contact of their creative unconscious – inspire each other to once again, embrace life.
