Falsely imprisoned while growing the impossible black tulip, unlikely war-hero Corn van Baerle falls for Rosa, the humble, unprivileged prison-keeper’s daughter, who uses newfound knowledge to save them all in this witty, romantic drama set during Holland’s 17th century tulip frenzy and against a highly-charged political backdrop that resonates today, based on Alexandre Dumas’ The Black Tulip.
