Incredible story of Rita Kallerhoff, German artist who immigrates to United States seeking destiny as a painter. From gay nightclubs in New York to jungles in Mexico; from surfer haven Laguna Beach, to high-end Manhattan brothel; from hippie revolution in San Francisco to elegant Park Avenue apartment, Rita lives life fully, painting all along the way. When a Medici-like patron gives her a blank check, Rita travels the world. Mongolia, Tahiti, India, Nepal and North Africa are some of the places Rita visits and paints. Morocco always holds special place in her heart and imagination, and she purchases a home in Marrakech. Meets handsome Sharif, thirty-four years younger, and hires him to pose for a painting—an unconventional romance ensues. Their unlikely, touching partnership is nearly destroyed by Sharif’s betrayal. Through all, Rita maintains a sense of humor and love of life that makes it seem that truly anything is possible.
