Synopsis:

Sarah Grégoire is a young and enthusiastic art restorer doing an internship in Paris.
Things seem to go well for her, but the tone quickly changes when Sarah discovers that famous paintings are being replaced by replicas. The switch between forgery and original is happening during the restoration process.
Sarah returns to Belgium and tries to unravel the truth behind a secret group named ‘The Friends of the Masters’, referring to the old masters like Rembrandt and Rubens. Helped by her best friend Valerie, she digs deeper into the ambiguous world of art, a world that she used to idealize. What does her father, a master restorer himself, or his former colleague and Sarah’s current employer Victor van der Veken, know about the forgeries? And what will be the consequences when Sarah reveals one of the best protected secrets in the history of Western art: ‘The Vanitas Project’…
