The Colour Black

Silvia is a half Norwegian half Mexican artist who lives in a luxurious penthouse in San Diego. Since the age of seven she has lived a secret life.

Jack is an environmental and human rights lawyer originally from New York, and a keen wild swimmer. Five years ago he suddenly realised life was not what it seemed.

They meet by chance. They share and intertwine their stories. One pivotal day they must drop everything and embark on a journey that is to take them physically from the streets of San Diego to the vast wilderness of Alaska, and mentally from their personal stories, to global issues, to the mysteries of the universe.
