What makes two people fall in love? For Liza and Annie, they were just two high school seniors who happen to meet at the museum. However, even from this initial meeting, there was something…something neither one understood. Still, it was there. This connection was foreign, powerful, forbidden, but possible. In time, both would come to recognize their true feelings. It begs the question, is love something that can be understood or should it be left unanswered?
