French post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin (Cassel) was an innovator of modern art, known for experimenting with bold color and distorted proportions, along with his contemporaries Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cezanne. By 1891, Gauguin is already well-known in artistic circles, but is tired of the so-called civilized world and its political and moral conventions. Leaving his wife and children behind, he ventures alone to the other end of the world, Tahiti, consumed with a yearning for new inspiration, and ready to sacrifice everything for his quest. Impoverished and solitary, Gauguin pushes deep into the Tahitian jungle, where he meets Tehura (Adams) his muse, who will inspire his most iconic works of art.
