In the 1960s, renowned artist Alberto Giacometti requests for the writer James Lord to become the subject of one of his portraits. Although this seems like an innocent suggestion at first, Lord is quickly drawn into the strange web of Giacometti's beautiful, controversial and difficult world. The portrait sitting becomes so much more than what it seems at face value, and Lord's entire life sits on the precipice due to his association with the wildly talented artist.
