The film follows the life of the young artists model Dorian Gray and his quest to stay young and beautiful. His friend Lord Henry teaches him to look at life as something to take and to use in his own way, Dorian's quest for opulence begins when the Artist creates him a beautiful portrait that somehow captures his essence.
