Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush) is a world-renowned expert in fine art and antiques. In his personal life, however, he is a reclusive recluse haunted by many obsessions. He has never been able to connect with another person, is unable to work with anyone and has never fallen in love with a woman in his life. He is therefore considered an eccentric genius by those around him. His only close relationship is with Robert (Jim Sturgess), a young and skilled restorer of vintage mechanical movements and clocks. But even this relationship cannot be called personal. The only thing Virgil devotes his passion to is his secret collection of female portraits of all artistic styles and periods, which he helps to replenish with Billy Whistler (Donald Sutherland), the other person he is willing to let into his private life.
And so his life runs completely without emotion or unexpected changes. It's not until the day of his sixty-third birthday that he receives an unexpected phone call from an unknown woman (Sylvia Hoeks) who introduces herself as Claire Ibbetson.
