This film recounts the troubled life of French sculptor Camille Claudel and her long relationship with Auguste Rodin. Beginning in the 1880s with the young Claudel's first meeting with Rodin, the film traces the development of their intense romantic bond and the rise of Claudel's career in spite of the prejudices against female artists. However, the couple’s romance soon sours due to the increasing pressures of Rodin's fame and his love for another woman. These difficulties combine with Claudel’s increasing doubts about the value of her work and drive her into an emotional tumult that threatens to become insanity.
