Time traveling has unforeseen consequences.
Evelyn, a girl adopted into a wealthy family, is in way over her head. Her family's occupation and her own personal love for Egyptian history led her to Cairo, where she enrolled as a student to further her dreams of becoming a certified egyptologist. When her fathers excavation team discovers a pharaohs tomb, they unknowingly enact a curse that changes her life.
Sent back 3,000 years to ancient Egypt with her sister Carol, they soon become embroiled in the affairs and politics of the royal family and neighbouring countries.
Taken as slaves to the palace, Evelyn and Carol serve the young Pharaoh Memphis, who's tomb their family excavated in the future. While adjusting to a completely different language, culture, and well let's be honest, social class, Evelyn manages to catch the eye of the King, who's infatuation with her runs so deep he would stop at nothing to keep her close.
