Brief synopsis

She is an icon, Empress, legendary beauty: Sisi, Europe’s first super star. Now, she will enter into a new era. A carefree teenager, Sisi falls head over heels in love with a powerful and desirable man. But he has an unspoken dark and dangerous side: love that was not meant to be. Sisi has to choose and accepts the challenge: The tomboy becomes a self-confident, modern woman, able to make difficult decisions, to deal with loss, and ultimately to fill an independent role as Empress.
