Having left behind immense success in Paris in 1917, Marc Chagall returns to Russia hoping to marry the love of his life, Bella Rosenfeld. There he paints prolifically and establishes the Academy of Modern Art, but develops a rivalry with abstract painter Kazimir Malevich after he is invited to teach at the school. Chagall finds that Bella is rekindling a childhood friendship with military Red Commissar Naum, and must compete for the affections of his muse and future wife. As the October Revolution sweeps across Russia, historical events intrude on personal struggles and upend the quiet provincial life in Vitebsk.
