Nous somme en 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.

In 1891, the French painter Paul Gauguin leaves Paris and travels to Tahiti to renew his art as a free man, far from the European artistic conventionalism. On his journey of discovery, he faces solitude and disease, but he also knows the beauty of wild nature and the love of Tehura, a young native girl who becomes his wife and model.
