Synopsis:

The Palace of Placentia, Greenwich, England, 1593. Queen Elizabeth I receives an unusual petitioner: the Irish Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley, come to negotiate for the freedom of her son, who has been arrested by the English for treason. But from the second she walks in, it's clear that Grace isn't like any other subject Elizabeth has met before; this could even be the one woman who has the upper hand over the Queen of England. Who could win this battle of wills?
