Chaz Wilmot's father is a famous illustration artist, in the vein of Norman Rockwell.
Chaz has not only inherited his skill but has surpassed him and is in fact, an artistic genius.
With a very ill son and an estranged wife whom he still loves but cannot provide for financially, Chaz accepts a commission to 'restore' an antique fresco in a European castle.
When he gets there, he discovers there's very little left to restore and the job is more of a 're-creation'; some would call it a forgery. And he does it brilliantly. His forgery is so good it leads to other opportunities.
Backed by the son of a former Nazi, whose family wealth came from art stolen from victims of the Holocaust, Chaz embarks on a journey that tests not only his artistic genius, but his moral convictions.
