The screen images consist of a wide selection of the paintings and sketches, shown in a chronological sequence, supplemented by shots of the locations he lived in, and a number of dramatised reconstructions of biographical events. The voice-over narration by John Hurt employs the letters of Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo.
