Film Synopsis

A reimagining of the infamous seating of what would become one of the most recognizable pieces of art in history, the Mona Lisa. An agitated and financially stunted Leonardo da Vinci is seeking repayment for a previous commission. Unfortunately for Lisa del Giocondo, she is the price that is to be paid. It is a man’s world and she has to live with it. The duo are like oil and vinegar. Will the debt be paid? Is there something to be learned from one another? Oh, and Leonardo’s not so talented pupil, Alessio, he’s there too.
