Holland. 1672. In the midst of political turmoil, a tulip craze sweeps the nation. Cornelius Van Baerle has spent years working to grow the prized 'black tulip,' and is on the verge of success when he is suddenly thrown into prison for a political crime he didn't commit. The only person who can save his life's work is the jailor's daughter - who doesn't give a damn for tulips.
