“DA VINCI’S DEMONS - THE COMPLETE FIRT SEASON” is a portrait of a young man tortured by the gift of superhuman genius. Da Vinci is a man in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies; religion and reason; past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time - luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most.
Leonardo must take up the fight against those who use history, religion and politics to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with genius, da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within and the darkness without.
Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. He throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and into the light of understanding.
