This historical drama is about Claude Monet, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy. The film begins in 1869 in a small town on the banks of the Seine outside Paris. There Monet (Stuart Hughes) experiments with his revolutionary new painting style. With his friend Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Richard Clarkin) he spends endless days perfecting canvasses that are shimmering reflections of local landscapes. Monet has little success selling his works, but he is proud and committed to his art. The son of Monet’s landlady, Daniel (Trevor Blumas), befriends Monet who becomes both a mentor and father-figure. Daniel’s mother (Maggie Huculak) is dismayed when Monet is late on his rent and then also finds out that Daniel is skipping school to accompany Monet on his painting excursions. She evicts him from the inn with great fanfare. Eventually all is made well when Daniel’s mother discovers that Daniel has learned the truth that his father abandoned them, and that Monet is the only one who Daniel will speak to. Though they both feel like giving up, together they find the strength to make it through the difficult times. In doing so, they teach each other the importance of holding on to goals and dreams...The film won the "Top 5 of the Year Award" from KidsFirst!
