Drama based on the life of French painter Seraphine de Senlis. A famous German art collector rents an apartment in the town of Senlis to write and to take a rest from the hectic life he has been living in Paris. The cleaning lady, Seraphine, is a rather rough-and-ready forty-year-old woman who is the laughing stock of others. One day, Wilhelm notices a small painting in his landlady's living room and is stunned to learn that the artist is none other than Seraphine.
