Description: Paul is young, in love, and talented beyond measure: a musician and painter with a natural gift for storytelling and poetry. He meets Dagny at the library and whispers in her ear, "Your blood is rushing through my veins." Soon they are lovers, but within days she has rejected him, pressured by her mother's snobbish disdain for Paul's lower social class-his father is a mere taxicab driver. This is the beginning of Paul's descent into hell: breakdown, schizophrenia, and institutionalization.
