As a painter, Francisco de Goya (played by Donatas Banionis) has attained wealth and reputation, and his brilliant skills opened all the doors, even the ones of the palace of the king Carl IV. Goya enjoys the fame, but a sudden meeting with the locals in a random tavern in Madrid shakes his world. With a brush in his hand, the painter steps up against the flaws of the community and the church. The paintings of the noble are being replaced by the images of darkness and confusion.
