Starting Point

A young unknown painter arrives in the bustling Paris of the beginning of the 20th century, the neurological center of art, where the work of Monet and Renoir was revered. Our artist is poor and starving, he sells his paintings for a pittance, although he does become part of the Bohemian circles of the city. His life changes when Mephistopheles crosses his path and promises the young man wealth and posterity in exchange for a most difficult pledge: that his paintings provoke artistic and moral chaos throughout the world. Sometime later, the artist is living in the south of France. His life has transformed into a series of staggering creations accompanied by ambition and delusions of grandeur. However, the boundaries between dreams and reality - and even nightmares - are not easy to identify. Every action has its consequences and the painter must now be a witness to the repercussions of his defense of chaos.
