AtMoreAt fifteen, Nina is trapped in the net of her parents grief over the accidental death of her little brother. Eager to hold the family together, she realizes that her mothers painting is the only way to rescue her from the brink of despair. At Ninas urging, her mother returns to the studio, where she begins a series of nude portraits of her remaining child, paintings that will chronicle the slow unfolding of a girls body into a womans. As the haunting images go public - over her fathers objections - Nina will be forced to deal with her burgeoning sexuality in front of a large audience. With tension in the family reaching a breaking point, the portrait entitled Nina: Adolescence will provoke a situation that very well might be the engine of her destruction...or the catalyst that enables her family to finally surmount tragedy.
