Paris 1880, Auguste Rodin, aged 40, finally receives his first state commission. He creates "The Gates of Hell", composed of figurines some of which will become his most famous works: "The Kiss" and "The Thinker". He shares his life with Rose, his lifelong partner, when he encounters the young Camille Claudel. His most gifted student, she quickly becomes his assistant, then his mistress. A decade of passion, mutual admiration and complicity ensues. Following their break up, Rodin continues to work relentlessly. He faces both the condemnation and enthusiasm provoked by the sensuality of his sculptures and with his Balzac, rejected during his lifetime, creates the undeniable starting point of modern sculpture.
