Much has been said about the works of artistic visionary Leonardo da Vinci, and though his personal life remains shrouded in secrecy, producer/director Robert Gardner offers a tantalizing glimpse into the existence of a man known not only for his art, but his brilliant inventions as well. In addition to painting such classics as "The Last Supper" and the "Mona Lisa," da Vinci also made an impression on the masses as a sculptor, a scientist, and an engineer. Over a century after his death, da Vinci's imaginative inventions continue to astound. Now fans of the arts can travel back in time to witness a true renaissance man as he explores his boundless talent while standing his ground in the face of shocking accusation and bitter betrayal.
