Filming the pioneering work of criminal lawyer turned archaeologist Kathleen Martinez, who has made it her life’s mission to locate the final resting place of Cleopatra, the last queen of Egypt. Despite centuries of searching, very little evidence of the location of Cleopatra’s tomb has ever been uncovered, but Kathleen’s radical new theory on the Queen’s identity and the way she lived her life, has led her to search in a long ignored backwater west of Alexandria. Digging at Taposiris Magna, her hunch has stunned the archaeological establishment as she has uncovered a hidden network of tunnels and chambers and a vast city of the dead.
