July 27, 1890, a small French town of Over. A skinny man walks along the street, holding hands for a very recent bullet wound in the abdomen, from which a lot of blood flows. This man was little known at that time, the persecuted artist Vincent van Gogh (Robert Gulaczyk). He was humiliated, called an abnormal psycho. This death was shrouded in mystery until a certain time. A year later the unfortunate son of the postman Joseph Rulin, named Armand (Douglas Booth), must find a worthy person who can give the last letter of the artist (it was intended for his brother, but he also died). Armand wants to find in Vinca a close friend of Vincent, Dr. Gachet (Jerome Flynn). While waiting for the latter to return, the postman gets to know many people who not only knew Van Gogh, but also appeared in his paintings. The life of this genius was as ambiguous as his canvases.
Cartoon is the world's first full-length project, created entirely from paintings painted in oil paints.
