After his father flees a brutal feudal system, abandoning their land, Arnau Estanyol arrives in Barcelona to find a city dominated by the construction of its great pride - the cathedral of Santa Maria de la Mar - and by its shame, the deadly Inquisition. As a young man, Arnau joins the powerful guild of stoneworkers and helps to build the church with his own hands, while his best friend and adopted brother, Joanet, studies to become a priest. With time, Arnau prospers, makes friends among the Jewish population of Barcelona, and falls secretly in love with a forbidden woman. When he is betrayed and haled before the Inquisitor, he finds himself face-to-face with his own brother. Will he lose his life just as his beloved Cathedral of the Sea is finally completed, or will his brother save him?
