Description A man is dying and Leonardo da Vinci is passionately drawing. He also wants his body for anatomical dissection. Charged with a crime against humanity and the soul of mankind, da Vinci's work is believed to be the work of the devil.
Three people shall become da Vinci's future: a one hundred year old man who counts every breath; a restive priest fighting for his mortality and a woman who shall become eternally famous. As passions and outrage collide, the artist, scientist and enigma that was da Vinci, becomes a metaphor for the right to express opinion and pursue difference.
