Galileo (Michael Moriarty) is on the verge of uncovering some of the mysteries of the universe but has to deal more with mundane problems as well; money, an idle, unemployed brother (Tony Nardi) and a jealous rival (Louis del Grande). He finds support from an unexpected source, the pampered son of the powerful Medici family. Under Galileo's tutelage, Cosimo de Medici (Kenny Vadas) finds that in searching for the stars, one has to have his feet firmly on the ground. The stakes mount as Galileo and his young protege struggle for intellectual freedom. Challenging the scientific authorities in Padova in 1605 leads to intrigue and curious risks on the path to the invention of the first telescope.
