Description
Ancient Rome. Young woman struggles to find her place as an artist in the world strictly ruled by men. Is her talent enough to overcome the obstacles made by laws and prejudice? What is the price of fulfilling her dreams and is she ready to pay it? Juliana loves Rome. It is a city that breathes art and she always knew that she would become a part of it, one way or the other. Rigid laws denying rights to women do not allow any female achievements in artistic affirmation. Tormented by her own talent and guided by Master Fabius, Juliana matures into a magnificent artist who dreams of becoming visible. After marrying Septimus, Master’s son, seemingly perfect family life becomes shattered when her husband confronts her with idea of her creating a new Roman temple under the name of Julius. Even though she was already once officially banned from pursuing her dream, Juliana cannot resist the opportunity to show all that she has. Despite of knowing that the price of being caught in deceit will mean end of her life and most likely her family’s, in a madwoman’s daze she surrenders all of herself to art. When it looked as if their scheme is going to pull through, Septimus comes home with devastating news...
