In 1981, unsuspecting NYC cabby Gabriel Brosa comes face to face with a mystery from his past. The revelation about his grade-school crush, Mandy, upends his life and sets him on a journey of self-discovery. Caught up in the choices he could have made with Mandy and memories of his college lover, Jennifer, Gabriel struggles to extricate himself from the grip of a haunting past. He is paralyzed by his own obsessive recollections, which soon threaten to destroy a budding romance with the beautiful, widowed Helene Hansen.
Fellow cabby Sal’s real-world outlook promises to set Gabriel free, but as Sal plunges into a search for a missing woman, his recklessness in the face of New York’s criminal underworld could end in tragedy.
Paint It Yellow explores the complexity of psychological experience, the power of love, and how the past can both consume and liberate us.
