David is a young and restless apprentice painter who wants to know everything about painting.
His intelligent teacher, the Master Messina, invents a way of transporting David through time to the prehistory. They go there looking for the origins of art, but once they are there nothing will be as they thought. In a second adventure they travel towards the unknown art of Mesopotamia. This time they won't go alone. The sympathetic and intelligent Angela will travel to the past with them bringing her particular point of view.
