Winter 1915. Camille Claudel is sectioned by her family in a psychiatric nursing home in the south of France, where she will no longer be able to devote herself to sculpture. Forced to leave Paris and her artistic activity, she now waits for her brother Paul to visit the institute, hoping to return home. Paul represents his only relationship with the outside world, after his father's death and his mother's renunciation to communicate with her. But the brother does not seem to be sensitive to the suffering and awkward of the woman, not listening to the advice of doctors to get her out of that forced isolation. Camille waits in vain for days to be able to regain her freedom, while Paul only accepts to pay so she can have the best possible conditions of internment, now convinced that her sister is not able to be able to devote himself to his work as a sculptor, certainly too much fragile to live as an artist.
