Description:
In 1672, the Haarlem horticultural society puts up a reward of 100.000 guilders for the first black tulip. Cornelis van Baerle, the son of a rich merchant, pursues horticulture for fun and starts experimenting.
Unfortunately, his peaceful life gets disrupted by a rival who cunningly uses political intrigue against him. He ends up in the Loevenstein prison because he is related to the De Witt brothers who had been lynched by an angry mob.
Once imprisoned, he falls in love with the jailer’s beautiful daughter. She helps him realize his dream of growing a black tulip.
