It is July 1890 as thirty-seven-year old Vincent van Gogh prepares for his last destination. Soon he plans to leave his tormented earthly life and move forward to a more peaceful place.

After Vincent dons his usual paint-splattered clothes and leaves several still-wet canvases behind in his cluttered room, he lovingly places his paint box and easel next to a garden wall, where he hopes someone will find them one day. As he revisits sites he has pained, Vincent touches the metal barrel of the borrowed pistol he has tucked secretly into his jacket while reflecting on his episodes of madness, his embarrassing seizures, and his less than ideal relationship with his brother, Theo. Finally while the malnourished and selfcondemned artist climbs a steep road above the rural lands of France to carry out his scheduled plan before nightfall, his destiny waits. Will Vincent have the courage to carry out his final act, and if so, what will be its consequences?

In this poignant tale, the imagined last thirty-six hours of the renowned artist play out in fascinating detail as he finally takes control of his tortured existence on Earth.
