About the show
The show is described as a ‘Journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt’, as two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.
