In this visceral, three-year race against time, Tim, a talented yet unknown LA artist bluffs his way into winning the commission to create the world’s largest stained-glass window of its kind. The problem is, Tim doesn’t know how to make it. After a desperate search, he finds someone who might have the answer… a world-famous glass maestro named Narcissus Quagliata. As the fates of three communities hang in the balance, Narcissus arrives like a storm, and changes everything.
