Head and partial shoulders of an Asian couple in what appears to be an intimate moment. We see the left side and back of a man's head and his bare shoulder. He appears to be lying on top of a reclining woman who's eyes are closed and lips parted. The background includes a piece of blue, tan and white fabric and a backdrop of wide green stripes, possibly a screen, wall or floor.
