Paul Gauguin (Vincent Cassel) epitomized the way of life of bohemian visionary. His radical deviations away from classical standards were frowned upon by the European artistic elite, leaving him with empty pockets and his large family with empty stomachs. Starved of inspiration and hungry to feast his eyes on a new world, he departed for Tahiti where he imagined he could paint in peace, living in harmony with nature.

1891. Gauguin s’exile à Tahiti. Il veut trouver sa peinture, en homme libre, en sauvage, loin des codes moraux, politiques et esthétiques de l’Europe civilisée. Il s’enfonce dans la jungle, bravant la solitude, la pauvreté, la maladie. Il y rencontrera Tehura, qui deviendra sa femme, et le sujet de ses plus grandes toiles.
