Opening in the year 1918 Gustav Klimt lies on his death bed. We follow his feverish visions back to the Austrian pavilion at the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris, where he is awarded the gold medal for his work entitled 'Philosophy'. At the pavilion he encounters the film magician 'Méliès', with the mysterious French dancer, Lea de Castro and the 'Secretary of State', an oppressive father figure who accompanies Klimt through the film like a shadow.
