Director and chore­o­g­ra­pher visu­alise the final days of the Vien­nese expres­sion­istic painter Egon Schiele. A feverish dream in which powerful, expres­sive move­ments explore the boundary between beauty and eroti­cism on the one hand and decay and perver­sity on the other. This brings his char­ac­ter­istic work to life in a romantic, but also raw and merci­less way. Schiele died in 1918 from the Spanish flu, three days after his preg­nant wife, at the age of 28.
