Egypt is in ruins – corrupted by three centuries of male tyranny.
Until… Cleopatra VII, the last Queen to ever rule Egypt, fixed her eyes on the empire.
A faraway Ancient Egyptian adventure of music, mythology, and misleading puppets. Join history’s most legendary leaders, Cleopatra VII, Julius Cesar, and Marc Antony, on a voyage of discovery, whose story can we trust, and whose lives must be lost?
