Following a teenage Leonardo da Vinci and set against the breath-taking backdrop of 15th century Florence, this series is far from a typical period drama. Bursting with mystery, adventure, comedy, and even a slowly unfolding love triangle, the show charts the exploits of history's most dynamic group of teens.
One night Leonardo is in the city's morgue, secretly (and illegally) studying anatomy, when he hears ticking from inside a corpse. Cutting it open, he discovers a tiny gold watch, which proves to run backwards.
The Duke is to judge a competition to find Florence's best young artist. Leonardo is determined to produce the best painting of his life so as to beat Michelangelo, confident that he himself is the superior artist.
