Description
In an abandoned San Francisco, the city's rebirth is powered by art. A young man strides across the Golden Gate Bridge, roller in hand, painting the famous structure a thousand shades of blue. A woman stands on the edge of the sea, sending messages to far-off lands in corked wine bottles. And a sleeping man dreams of building an angel from the spare parts that are the last remnants of a vanished civilization. A plague has passed through San Francisco, leaving only the artists, eccentrics, and dreamers to build the city anew. But when war threatens to overtake this quiet metropolis, the artists must learn to fight back. The bloodthirsty General Miles wants the city for himself and will destroy all those who stand in his way. To protect their whimsical paradise, the citizens band together in a curious form of guerilla warfare, fighting hate with the favorite weapon of bohemia: an open heart.
