Synopsis: It is the true story of Matisse's creation of the chapel at Vence. Matisse was the best-loved artist of the 20th century, but this story - an atheist's spiritual romance with a young nun - is practically unknown, In 1942, 73-year-old Henri Matisse was living in Nice, recovering from a serious operation. He needed help, so he hired Monique Bourgeois, a 21-year-old nursing student. During the twilight years of his life, the artist's relationship with Bourgeois affected him profoundly. Arguments about religion, art and the meaning of commitment ensued. He loved her. Five years later, they were both living in Vence. Now she was Sister Jacques-Marie, living in a convent where the chapel was in a garage with a leaky roof. Would he help?
