Twelve-year-old Aurora is an artist like her father. Through a hundred drawing lessons, he has guided her hand, trained her eye, taught her how to mix colors and achieve perspective. Together they plan to paint a beautiful mural for Rory's mother, maybe a sunset because she always misses the real sunset while she's at her job, supporting the family.
Rory goes to find her father in his studio so she can show him her sketch for the mural. But when she arrives, she finds him kissing his model. Outraged, she tries to hurt him by burning up her sketchbook, and her father leaves. Rory is devastated and stops painting altogether. Finally, she realizes that she has to talk to her father.
