Her ill mother faces her last days and her preoccupied father has grown even more distant. In the shadow of her parents sorrow, Maria pursues a much older man, a disreputable art collector. She is infatuated with him, as with the French paintings she has come to love. Maria enters a world of tenderness and captivity, of transgression and awakening, and of art and sensuality. Lyrical, painterly and erotic, Indolence is a portrait of a young girls haunting passage into womanhood.
