Beyond the Silence


It is 1890 and the painter Vincent Van Gogh, convalescing from severe mental illness, arrives in the small village of Auvers-sur-Oise, north of Paris. There he is befriended by the local doctor, Paul Gachet, whose attempts to help the painter become more and more desperate as the story unfolds.

Over a century later another doctor, Richard Avery, comes across the portrait that Van Gogh painted of Doctor Gachet. Its effect on the modern doctor is overwhelming and devastating.
