Paris in the 1920s. Alain Degout is a struggling artist; a rubbish painter of nostalgic fodder (baskets of puppies, wide-eyed orphans, kittens playing with wool), who longs for fame and fortune.

Degout receives limited support from friends including dimwitted fop Paul Rochet, temperamental musician and teacher Minotti, and his tormented pupil, Madame Ovary.

As he strives to have his art appreciated by critics and the public, Degout has numerous challenges to face.
