All the while, neither man knows that the source of the horror stalks the floor above M. Monet's suite...

By now a celebrated and successful artist, Claude Monet returns to London to paint his famous Thames series. Nostalgic for his earlier visit in 1870, the old man busies himself with a frenzy of creative activity. Little does he know, however, that his haunting canvasses will act as a backdrop to a series of savage killings.
