A reflection on love, sacrifice, and the creative spirit, this candid New York story explores the chaotic 40-year marriage of renowned ‘boxing’ painter Ushio Shinohara and his artist wife, Noriko.  Their story begins in 1969 when Noriko forgoes her education to become wife and assistant to an unruly husband, spanning four decades to give a moving portrayal of a couple wrestling with the eternal themes of sacrifice, disappointment and aging, against a background of lives dedicated to art.
