Galactia, a Renaissance-era artist is commissioned to create a heroic painting memorializing “The Battle of Lepanto,” a famous naval victory of the Venetian government. But her artistic vision highlights the horror, cruelty and suffering of war –nothing that the government want to celebrate. Will Galactia choose to pander to the church and state or honor her artistic principles and doom herself?
