Foto: Anne Regitze Wivel

A brain injury after a fall forces Per Kirkeby, one of Denmark's most famous artists, to stop painting. In an instant Kirkeby loses his life's foundation as well as his ability to work. He is no longer able to see colors, and he can no longer orient himself in the large canvases that have made him a figurehead for Danish and international contemporary art. The film is the story about Per Kirkeby's universe - marked by deep melancholy as well as astounding beauty. A story about a man struggling for his life and work.
