The true story of Séraphine Louis, a simple, devout housekeeper who in 1905, at the age of 41, began painting brilliantly colorful canvases. In 1912, a German art critic discovered her paintings while she was working as his maid. Tells the story of the relationship between the avant-garde dealer and the visionary cleaning lady, forging a testament to the mysteries of creativity and the resilience of one woman's spirit.
