Watching from the shadows, her sister, Mutny, detests the back-stabbing nature of palace life, and as she dreams of a simple life in the countryside, sher records her sister's transformation from teenage girl to living goddess.
But Nefertiti's star quality can only take her so far, and when she's prepared to sacrifice her sister to strenghten her power, the two women become locked in a feud which only death can break...
