LOGLINE: A gifted American artist (30+) joins the Medici Artists colony in Tuscany, Italy where she discovers an immortality potion that the patron has been taking since the Renaissance. As she unravels the mystery and nearly ingests it out of curiosity, she discovers her ancestral connection to him and to some of Italy's greatest artists and scientists. She falls in love with a man who triggers a distant memory of their previous lifetimes together also during the Renaissance, revealing her role and her responsibility for the fate of the patron, the others who have been taking it, and the potion itself. As the keeper of this distorted 'Fountain of Youth', she has the fate of humankind in her hands and understands that the inspiration to create art comes from a deep acceptance of our mortality and limited time on earth.

GENRE: Drama (Love Story, Historical and Supernatural)
LOGLINE: A gifted American artist (30+) joins the exclusive Medici Artists colony in Tuscany, Italy where she discovers an immortality potion that the patron has been taking since the Renaissance. As she unravels the mystery behind it, she discovers her ancestral connection to the patron who’s an original Medici and also to some of Italy's greatest artists and scientists. She connects with a mystical woman who has a great affinity for her and plays an important role in this Renaissance mystery. She also falls in love with a man who appears to be a great love of hers from a previous lifetime, her Renaissance lifetime where she was gifted painter and the daughter of the inventor of the immortality elixir. The script takes place primarily in the present day in Florence, Italy and nearby Tuscany with flashbacks to the late Renaissance era and reveals an alternate version of history, one that lays the foundation for Western Civilization as it celebrates the influence of women.
She ultimately holds the fate of the immortality elixir in her hands and is faced with the dilemma to take it and join her ancestors and to continue to perpetuate the practice of nurturing the world's greatest artists and scientists, or destroy it and keep the human condition in tact. Her story celebrates the gifts of artistic passion, the timelessness of true love, and the power of the human spirit.
