Paul is a little boy who is named afer his father, the artist Paul Cezanne. The elder Cezanne had been away from home for so long that the boy hardly recognizes his father when they go together on a painting expedition to the mountains of southern France. Even so, they quickly become fast friends, and the artist enjoys painting a portrait of his apple-cheeked son. Most of his paintings, however, are landscapes of the mountain country of Provence. The people who live nearby laugh at the artist’s pictures, which they think are poor. but young Paul admires his father’s work – and he isn’t alone. An influential art dealer from Paris happens to be in the region, and when he sees Cezanne’s paintings, the lives of both father and son change dramatically.
