She starts to speak about her writing, specifically her use of repetition, and to connect this idea with her own life experiences. A young Gertrude then appears to guide the audience through her memories of her life as a student, falling in love with Alice B. Toklas, their time together in France and Alices account of Steins final day.

These vignettes, each culminating in a song (music by Stephen Flaherty), adeptly encapsulate the joy and passion of Steins life and work, and the depth and complexity of a lesbian romance. Galati sheds new light on Steins views on language, communication, and ideas by emphasizing how her art evolved from her fascination with the repetition of human behavior-as Stein sings to the audience Loving repeating is one way of being.
