Throughout his short life, two selves were at odds in Vincent van Gogh — the artist, who approached divine love (and madness) in his paintings; and the lover, who shared divine love as a family man and a preacher among working people.
This “magical realism” story finds Vincent in the insane asylum, in the worst crisis of his life. Boldly, he splits himself and seizes the last chance to explore the of life of family and preaching that had always beckoned, but always eluded him.
In Italy, living with his former love and her son, he finds a home and a community that needs him. But he also finds he cannot escape the destiny to which he was born — even if it means his death.
