An artist near the end of his career finds new inspiration in a young model. A famous and well-respected artist who lives in a comfortable estate in the French countryside, at the age of 60, considers his career as a painter to be over. He no longer feels inspired to create, and his last attempt at a major work, a nude study of his wife Liza, has sat unfinished for ten years. His protégé suggests a more inspiring subject, who exchanges ideas and opinions, as he methodically attempts to create a final masterpiece.
