"Set in nineteenth-century England, this gothic ghost story centers around a governess taking care of two orphans in a foreboding Victorian mansion. As eerie apparitions appear and the children's behavior becomes strange, the governess begins to wonder about the fate of the previous governess and her sadistic lover.

Un soir, Toulouse-Lautrec rencontre une prostituée du nom de Marie Charlet. Pour la protéger de la police, il l'emmène chez lui. Commence alors une des idylles qui va petit à petit entraîner la déchéance du peintre au moment même où ses oeuvres vont connaître la reconnaissance publique...(Colaco).
