The much-discussed and prize-winning (glass) painter Marc Mulders is followed for four seasons, painting and working at a studio for mentally challenged people.

Marc Mulders is a much-discussed artist. He was at one time rejected at the art academy due to his emotional immaturity, which expressed itself in idealism. Now, he regularly gets commissions and made the stained glass window 'Een tuin van glas' to commemorate Queen Beatrix' 25th jubilee. He can vent his idealism in his work at Artenzo, a studio for mentally challenged artists. In Dew, Mulders is followed for four seasons, each period being introduced by poetic nature images. Long, contemplative scenes with the artist at work are alternated with registrations of visits to expositions, varnishing days and art manifestations, and Artenzo. Sometimes directly, sometimes in voice-over, Mulders talks about his career, about Catholicism as a source of inspiration, about his painting techniques, the use of material and his vision of art in general.
