1912. Seraphine Louis, 42, lives in Senlis, a small town fifty kilometers outside Paris. She earns a living doing household chores and cleaning. In her spare time, Seraphine paints, on anything that comes to hand (plates, furniture, small wooden panels). She works as a maid for Madame Duphot, who rents an apartment to a German art critic and dealer, Wilhelm Uhde, an enthusiastic advocate of modern and “primitive” artists. At a dinner party given by Madame Duphot, Wilhelm comes across a small painting that Seraphine brought over a few days previously. Mesmerized, he snaps it up and insists that S?raphine show him the rest of her work. He buys it all and encourages her to continue developing her talent.
The Great War breaks out. Uhde is forced to flee France and abandon S?raphine. During the fighting, through famine, poverty and harsh winters, S?raphine never stops painting.
1927. Back in France, Wilhelm Uhde now lives in Chantilly, not far from Senlis, with his sister, Anne-Marie, and his companion, Helmut. At Anne-Marie’s insistence, he visits an exhibition of amateur painters in Senlis, where, at the far end of one of the rooms, he glimpses huge, shimmering, mystical canvases. Wilhelm immediately recognizes Seraphine's style. Overcome with emotion, he decides to take the elderly woman under his wing once more.
