Paul Gauguin lives today, as aimlessly Berlin artist Paul Alfred G. Disappointed with Europe, he wants to found a Colony of Free Arts in Tahiti! But none of his artist friends want to follow him. Instead, they have plenty of suggestions, what he could do there, instead of them. Arrived in Tahiti he is horrified by highways, gated communities and impoverished suburban settlements. He moves on to the atomically contaminated Mururoa Atoll. There he creates, carrying out the commissions of his artist friends, an impressive late work that is marketed by a foreign legionnaire. The works achieve top prices in Europe, but the collectors fall ill from the atomic radiation of the works, just as the artist himself.
