When naïve and impressionable young man Dorian Gray arrives in London after he inherits a large estate, he immediately falls under the spell of Lord Henry Wotton, and slowly acquires a taste of sin. After an artist paint the portrait of Dorian, the later is so taken by his own face and beauty; That he swear he would give anything to remain youthful, even his soul.

Somehow the enchanted painting, as is turn to be, grants him his wish, and so he never aged a second. His vanity doesn’t stop at this, he is plunging deeper and deeper into a life of excess and sin and debauchery, not that this is bothering him or causing remorse.

The truth is with every sin he commits the painting get more twisted and damaged, thus capturing the real Dorian, bent on protecting his secret, he keeps the painting hidden, but he is soon committing the biggest of sins, murder.

A haunting tale of power, greed and vanity. That is seen as a disguised portrait of the aristocratic decay of Victorian societies.
