1891. Gauguin has exiled himself to Tahiti to rediscover his painting as a free, wild man, far from the moral, political, and aesthetic codes of civilized Europe. Deep in the jungle, coping with solitude, poverty, and sickness, he encounters Tehura, who will become his wife and the subject of his greatest paintings.
