In the sumptuous court of the emperor Akbar, in 16th century India, a group of artists begins the painstaking task of chronicling the emperor's life. Bihzad is the son of the chief artist and as such, he is groomed to follow in his father's footsteps. A child prodigy, Bihzad is shielded from life as he grows up in the stunning fortress town of Agra. But as word of his talent spreads, rumours about the wild, passionate nature of his secret drawings bring his enemies out into the open. When the young artist breaches the rules of the court, they will use his art to destroy him.
