"That's like a moment of hope to me. When everything's new. Waiting to run out there and start the game." Dana was the toast of the art world - a hot property. After her latest exhibition bombs, she is admitted to a psychiatric hospital. It might be the safest place for her but her insurance will only pay for ten days. As unlikely friendships and strange alliances develop, Dana draws on the inspiration of American baseball star Darryl Strawberry - he had the sweetest swing.
