The story opens with young Rosarita (Jaclyn Blumas) helping find a new home where her mother, Leocadia (Shannon Lawson), can work as a housekeeper. A run-in with Francisco de Goya (Cedric Smith) at the local church turns out to be a blessing. Enchanted by Rosarita's artistic talent, Goya agrees to hire Leocadia. A visit to the royal palace to gather Goya's belongings turns disastrous when he is questioned about his art by the king's Inquisitor Garcini (Jan Filips). Goya's haughty son, Javier (Robert Bockstael) manages to cover for his father.

Finally, Goya and his new companions set out for his humble new home in the country. When Goya turns gravely ill, it is Rosarita who has the most faith. Just when it seems that the great artist no longer has the strength to continue, she convinces him to keep fighting. Recovered and with newfound inspiration, Goya begins an ambitious work directly on the walls of his dining room, which became known as The Black Paintings.
