Bruges 1435. The famous painter Jan Van Eyck completes his painting 'Madonna with Canon Joris Van der Paele'. There are two figures missing from the canvas: the madonna and a green ring-necked parakeet. Jacob the apprentice is sent by his master to the port to pick up the models. Instantly, he falls in love with the ravishing Anna. In the subsequent commotion, the ring-necked parakeet flies away and Anna runs after the bird. To make matters worse, Jacob breaks an heirloom given to him by his mother when he fell. In spite of his clumsiness, will he be able to fulfil his dream and ever become a painter? And in turn will Anna fall for him? The exciting and compelling love story runs as a thread through Historium and takes you on a unique and truthful trip through the glorious, medieval Bruges.
