After the civil war that followed the assassination of Caesar, Cleopatra meets with Marc Antony in Assyria to plan the defense of Egypt against the Romans. Before the fight she entrusts her young daughter Shila to the rulers of Assyria, to be brought up as their own. After Marc Antony's defeat and Cleopatra's death, Egypt is ruled by the youthful pharaoh Nemorat. His despot mother Tegi desires to unite both kingdoms and strengthen her son's rule by conquering Assyria and make Shila his wife. Shila, however, plans to bail herself out with the help of her lover, the physician Reti.
