For a girl that has a hard time meeting people, Viola manages to befriend the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci and gain the affections of the handsome Giuliano de' Medici. Only by working in a master artist's workshop will Viola discover her voice, tap into her artistic abilities, and find her way home.
