The CGI or computer animated drama/documentary takes place on Darwin IV, a planet 6.5 light years from earth, with 2 suns and 60% of Earth's gravity. Having identified Darwin as a world that could support life, Earth sends a pilot mission consisting of the Mothership Von Braun and three probes: Balboa, Da Vinci, and Newton. This robotic fleet is responsible for finding and assessing any life forms on Darwin IV. Initially, the expectation is to find microscopic life, but the probes soon find themselves in the middle of a developed ecosystem teeming with diversity of life of all sizes.

This is the story of one of the greatest minds in human history. A scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer, Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was a polymath and arguably the main figure of the Renaissance. He set out to learn all there is to know, conceived new ideas and inventions that changed the world, and created artistic works of astonishing elegance and beauty, including the most famous painting in history, the Mona Lisa.
