Albert Butler wished once to be an artist, but scandal destroyed his life. Now old and sick, he takes us back through his troubled childhood, England's blitz, and two passionate and destructive affairs. We see his life as an autobiography of nudes. Returning to his former London haunts, he confronts old friends who have never forgiven him his sins, and after making his confession to a defrocked priest, sets out on a journey along the Thames that will bring him to the final and naked truth about himself.
