Plot Synopsis

After the murder of his father Giovanni, banking heir Cosimo Medici battles opponents of his artistic, economic and political visions for 15th-century Florence. With uncertainty about how his father died, Cosimo runs the Banco Medici and leads the Florentine Republic, while being haunted by his family's tragedy, causing him to think back 20 years earlier through flashbacks that reveal the relationship between Giovanni and his two sons.
