Dorian Gray is a beautiful but naïve young man when he arrives in Victorian London. He becomes the subject in a painting by artist Basil Hallward, who becomes infactuated with him and his beauty. Through Basil, Dorian meets the charismatic Lord Henry Wotton, who introduces him to the hedonistic pleasures of the city. After Lord Henry suggests that the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfilment of the senses, Dorian, realising his looks will one day fade, wishes that Basil’s portrait of him decay and age in his stead. Dorian’s desire is granted, and he is subsequently plunged into a series of debauched and wicked deeds, having sold his soul.
