Following the sudden death of her husband, 25-year-old Catrin leaves her small village and takes a job as a housekeeper to the successful Van Nulandt merchant family. Madam Van Nulandt passes her time taking expensive painting lessons from a local master, Rembrandt van Rigin. When Catrin takes up a brush to finish some of her mistress's work, Rembrandt realizes the maid has genuine talent and encourages her to continue. When a figure from her past threatens her new life, Catrin flees to the smaller city of Delft, where she earns a living painting pottery at a local workshop. But when tragedy strikes, Catrin must decide whether to defend her newfound independence or return to the village that she had fled.
