Alistair is a painter. When his wife dies, he tries to preserve his memory of her in the only way he knows how. On his canvas. But as the days and months pass, he feels her slipping away from him. Desperately, he orders a model to help him recall the form and shape of a woman on which he can impose the fading memories of his wife.
But when Claire shows up on his door, Alistair gets much more than he bargained for as she challenges his conventions of beauty and the memories of his wife.
A comedy about grief, love, memory, and inspiration One for the Ugly Girls follows Alistair as he comes to reconcile the memory of his wife, and Claire as she wrestles with the ideas of beauty, art and mortality.
