When Prince Ivan's older brother Petar gives up his rightful inheritance as the next King of Assyria to be with the one he loves, Ivan is left in a compromising position. He has served in the temple all his life to undertake priesthood and is now thrust into the role of 'future King' without the training, knowledge or experience to undertake such a task.
Ivan is sent away to live among his people, in a village where no person will recognise him. His mother the Queen gives him one ultimatum. He is not to fall in love with a commoner. He is however, to learn the ways of the common man so he can become a King for the people.
Ivan undertakes this task to fulfill his duty as King of Assyria. However, in his new found home far away from the palace he meets a young lady by the name of Katarina. It is not long before he finds himself in the same dilemma as his older Brother.
Will he choose love or will he choose to fulfill his duty?
