Leonardo Da Vinci is a low-born, 15th-century genius who enjoys women, painting and inventing extraordinary things. As a 25-year-old wandering about Florence, Italy, da Vinci practices his swordmanship while spreading his idealism. He experiences powerful visions that cause him to question his past and send him on a quest for the truth, especially about his mother. He also finds forbidden love with Lucretia, the mistress of his father's employer, Lorenzo de' Medici, a wealthy banker. Da Vinci has many adventures with his sidekicks Nico and Vanessa, all the while outrunning the encroaching shadow of the Catholic church.
