French schoolgirl Aimée Dubucq de Rivéry (Amber O'Shea) is kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. With her dazzling beauty, it's no surprise that this choice object of lust is purchased by none other than the sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Abdul Hamid (F. Murray Abraham). Once added to his harem, Aimée dutifully bears the sultan a son -- and little by little gains power over his political affairs. This 19th-century drama is based on a true story.
