Synopsis

Drama about Michel de Nostradame, a remarkably modern man born into the dark and unforgiving world of 16th century Europe. As a young doctor, Nostradamus bravely pursued unorthodox medical experiments including homeopathic remedies, treatments for the Black Plague and the extraction of perfumes. He risked his life and family in the name of his ground-breaking scientific doctrines and his prophecies. Only his close association with Catherine de Medici, Queen of France, protected him. Burdened by intense dreams and stunning visions, Nostradamus foretold world wars, man in space and other momentous events that span across the centuries and into our own.
