A soap opera that spans 40 years with multiple character perspectives.
Maisie Wells is only 19 when she's swept up into the world of rock and roll when she meets young Roger Waters in a park in Cambridge, but much to the chagrin (maybe?) of the jaded, troubled bassist is charmed instead by his best friend Syd Barrett, a sweet, innocent, but unfortunately very sick boy. After a bizarre and sad set of circumstances leaves Syd and Maisie torn apart, she moves on, eventually...with shy, guarded, stable David Gilmour. This is their story: the story of a muse and her three artists, three (maybe?) love stories that leave four people tied for life (and after).
Our story starts in 2006 at Syd's funeral, where three are reunited for the first time in years.
P.S. - I have sprinkled references to songs and r/pinkfloydcirclejerk memes throughout this piece in the hopes that my friends there will give me a little bit of a cult following. Enjoy, guys!
