Palace intrigues, plots, desire for power and throne, stout longings, fear, loneliness, love, and strength. There is everything in this story about the clash between Two queens – Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart: a struggle for power and supremacy, sacrifice, betrayal, and love. And the stakes are high because it is a matter of fighting life and death. One is Queen. And so is the other. These two queens are very similar – both are smart, single women who inhabit their ivory towers but at the same time they are different. One's whole life is looking for love, the other sacrifices love for the sake of being strong. However, there is more to the apparent battle between the two women. They are not only struggling for power. They have a cause. And this is something that is missing today. Because what is power when you can't even have control over yourself? Does the power cost anything when you have no idea?
