Based on actual events, when a young Vincent Van Gogh arrives in Brixton, England, he falls in love with a beautiful young woman carrying a cup of tea. Her mother has a room for rent. Vincent's journey of self discovery begins as the artist finds inspiration from his landlady, her daughter and a fellow boarder, a struggling artist who sees beauty in every day objects. This is a house full of secrets and as Van Gogh begins to see things in new ways, his destructive nature takes hold.
