What is this painting that charms people over the centuries? Which mystery does it conceal?
Her name is everywhere.
The Guard of the Museum, protects her portrait.
The action is evolving.
What will happen inside the Museum?

Will Magda Mavroyianni, as the mysterious guard of the painting, Dimitris Kountouras with the Renaissance wind instruments ensemble and the artist Vassilis Garyfallakis in the role of Leonardo da Vinci, with unexpected interventions, awaken the past and Leonardo’s ghost thus unfolding the story?
