Two political factions fight for control of Egypt. One faction is led by Hatshepsut who has gained political control of Egypt after the death of her husband Thutmose II. She is head of the regency and is to lead the country until the male heir, Thumose III - son of Thutmose II and his second wife Isis - is old enough to assume control. Hatshepsut pursues her effort to make Egypt an economic and trading powerhouse. Meanwhile, tensions grows as Hatshpsut finds a myriad of ways to avoid passing the thrown to her successor.
