The year 1920 signals a time of change. The wholesome Gibson Girl is fading from grace, but the spirited Flapper has yet to emerge. In the midst of this transition, Hannah struggles to find her place. Her modeling jobs among the budding bohemian scene of Greenwich Village lead her to Russian painter Pavel.

Displaced from his homeland and dissatisfied with his art, Pavel identifies with Hannah's restless spirit. Finding his muse, the emigre is determined to bring out the best in his shy, young model. In turn, Hannah surrenders herself to the artist’s whims. But when his unorthodox approach stirs Hannah’s innermost taboo desires, she faces the truest test of convention...and the heart.

With themes of light bondage, and a guest appearance by a young Anais Nin, Efflorescence explores Hannah's coming-of-age at a time when women, as a whole, sought to expand their role in a changing world.
