Narrated by Frida Kahlo’s younger sister, Cristina, this haunting and powerful fictional account chronicles Kahlo’s life, from a childhood shadowed by polio to the accident at eighteen that left her barren, from her marriage to larger-than-life muralist Diego Rivera through her tragic decline into alcoholism and drug abuse. Through it all, Cristina is her sister’s intimate confidante - and then her bitter antagonist when she has a not-so-secret affair with Rivera.

It is a compelling and intensely human portrait of an artist who would become an enduring icon for generations to come.
