For 43 years -half of his life, from 1883 to his death in 1926, Claude Monet lived in Giverny. When he settled in his house in Normandy, a new life began for the painter. He embarked on an innovative pictorial adventure, developing the technique of series, such as the Haystacks, the Cathedrals, and the famous Waterlilies. In Giverny, Monet also started a new family with Alice Hoschedé and their respective children. Thanks to unpublished letters and private photos, the film relates Monet's daily life in Giverny.
