Master Henri (m), a lunatic artist; Chimere (m), friend of Henri; Celeste, a model.
“Master Henri is one of the greatest artists in the world! Or so says his friend Chimere. But when Celeste shows up to model in the nude for the great artist, she is brought to a padded cell in Bellevue prison. Henri is a lunatic, tightly wrapped in a straight jacket, standing on a rollaway bed that seems to float on yards of white clothing he has shredded and tied to the bed frame. He has no paints, no charcoal, no pastels and no paper! His art is perception, Chimere explains, and Celeste is not sure exactly how she should 'perceive' this whole set up. To disrobe or not to disrobe, that is the question.
