Le portrait gooble

After the death of their father, a brother and sister find themselves in a competition to find out who is the better painter. Over the course of the various events, the competition intensifies and soon their emotions are thrown into turmoil. Will Lydia and Denver be able to put their rivalry aside before another misfortune befalls their family? Le portrait Gooble is a story about fraternity, paintbrushes and ghosts, which colourfully examines the respect of personal differences.
