He is entrusted with the honorific task of painting the portrait of Empress Ulanara. This concubine became empress after the death of the first wife of Emperor Qian Long will have a very special destiny. Kind of romantic figure before the hour, it will remain of her only this portrait with the enigmatic sensuality of the Asian Mona Lisa. The film tells of this feverish moment when the Chinese empress meets the Jesuit painter. A moment when the electric relation between a painter and his model is caught in the constraints of the court and its rigid label and in the most extreme cultural differences.
