Veronica Lyons and her autistic son Jupiter, visit the Louvre and walk out with the Mona Lisa. Not the painting, but the spirit of Lisabetta, Leonardo’s youngest sister, trapped in her portrait.
Lisa has the remaining nine months, during the anniversary of her death, to move on to her next incarnation. But during the five-hundred years since her death, the people closest to her in life have reincarnated.
It’s up to the eight-year-old Jupiter to rally them and his despondent mother to unlock the conundrum of an anonymous woman being the most famous face in the world.
Jupiter can see Lisa; his mother can only hear her, and Lisa must rely on their challenged relationship to communicate with each other and redress a powerful wish, uttered in haste, in order to reunite with her loved ones and live again.
The ‘Mona Lisa’ has stepped outside her painting to avenge a five-hundred year old mistake.
“If your name were to be irretrievably lost, cut apart from your time and permanently erased from the world, overshadowed by the lies of silence… were you ever truly here?” ~ Lisabetta
