Inspired by the writings of Louise L. Hay, Painting the Future reveals how the thoughts we choose create the life we live. An unlikely friendship is formed between a bitter painter who has lost his sight, and a sweet Hispanic girl, his 9 year-old neighbor, who is determined to save up for her Quincinera dress.

On the second floor of a low-income apartment complex lives Jonathan Page. Once an established painter, Page now lives out his bitter days terrorizing the joy of his neighbors’ lives as well as his own. From the courtyard below, nine-year-old Lupe Saldana takes notice of Jonathan. Determined to save up for a dream quinceañera dress, Lupe extends herself as hired help for all the personal errands and daily chores that Jonathan can no longer do himself. Through this proposition, a friendship begins to blossom, and Lupe’s optimistic innocence slowly breaks down the wall of Jonathan’s guarded brokenness.
