Leonardo welcomes Mona Lisa Ghirardini into his studio in the city of Florence to paint a portrait that was never delivered to the owner. Da Vinci kept the painting and started a long romance with Mona Lisa that lasted over 20 years. The portrait accompanied Leonard during all his traveling and through different homes.
This dramatic fiction recreates the relationship of Leonardo with the Gioconda, with his assistants Salai, and with the world and his relentless search for truth and beauty. The painting keeps captivating Humanity after many centuries and keeps posing the same questions Da Vinci posed to himself:
Why is the Gioconda laughing? What mystery is Mona Lisa hiding? Why is that smile the portal to our soul? What is the nature of the divine feminine?
