A sweeping romantic historical drama which follows thirty years in the life of a great artist – loosely based on Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century’s most admired visual artists. Moves from a childhood in Nazi Germany, to falling in love in post-war East Berlin, to escaping to the West at the time of the Berlin Wall, and ultimately being part of the exciting new movement in contemporary art.
