Sadness and love permeate this deeply touching coming of age story based around the life of Rembrandt, the great Dutch painter. Caring for her difficult father at the end of his life, Cornelia pieces together the story of her own childhood and discovers much more about her father’s love than she had ever known before.

Out of favour with Amsterdam's elite, and considered brash and unreasonable by his patrons, Rembrandt van Rijn, once revered, is now teetering on the brink of madness.
