The Amazons of Istanbul


In 1808, the audacious and whimsical Sultan Esma unexpectedly becomes the first woman to rule the Ottoman Empire. She battles prejudice and hindrance, which reawakens traumas from Esma’s outcast childhood, leaving her disoriented and straining her relationships. With the help of her cousins who are devoted warriors, Esma strives to navigate the throne, which leads to a path of self discovery.
