Two incredible actresses who have proven their talent in multiple roles, re-create the clash of two powerful historical figures - Mary Stuart, played by Saoirse Ronan and her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, portrayed by Margot Robbie. Mary becomes Queen of France at the tender age of 16, but widowed only two years later. She decides to return to her motherland Scotland and reclaim the throne. However, not only England but also Scotland is ruled by Elizabeth I in the 1560s. Mary’s conspiracies against the Queen of England are not crafty enough to really change the course of history. The two powerful queens strive for independence in a rough world, dominated by men and there could be only one winner.
