EYES SHUT. DOOR OPEN
Eyes Shut. Door Open is a modern Cain and Able story set in the SoHo art scene of New York City. Turner Street's bold paintings are the hottest thing to hit the scene - they've even captured the attention of the elusive Johanna, who has more than just art on her mind. But when his one-eyed, pill-popping, younger brother appears, Turner must face the disturbing truth of his success, and the haunting family secrets shut behind doors, as one man's trauma is another man's muse, and facing it could mean losing everything.
