In 2016 the Noordbrabants Museum in the Dutch city of Den Bosch held a special exhibition devoted to the work of Hieronymus Bosch who died 500 years ago. This late-medieval artist lived his entire life in the city, causing uproar with his fantastical and utterly unique paintings in which hell and the devil frequently played a prominent role. This film follows a team of Dutch art historians as they crisscross the globe to unravel the secrets of his art in preparation for the exhibition.
