Brutus and Cassius are dead at Phillippi, leaving two men to inherit the world: Octavian, young, brilliant and sickly-looking – or Mark Antony, a powerful war-lord in his prime. It seems like no contest. But Cleopatra, mourning the death of Julius Caesar, is determined to attain world power for her son Caesarion. She must choose to seduce either Antony or Octavian and makes Antony her choice. But Antony is first and foremost a Roman and she must first overcome his prejudices. A compelling chronicle of love, hate, defeat and victory as Antony and Cleopatra challenge Octavian for the world.
