It is the glory days of the Ottoman Empire. Sultan Suleiman, the Magnificent rules over “the three continents and the seven seas” and his wife Hurrem is the empire’s most powerful woman.

Their beautiful daughter, Princess Mihrimah, is in love with the great architect Sinan and Sinan with her. Hurrem, who believes his daughter’s feelings for Sinan are just a whim, decides to marry her to the fearsome warrior Rustem Pasha. Running away is not an option for the lovers since the world belongs to the Sultan. “But what if we escape to another time?”

This is the question Sinan asks himself while praying under the dome of his masterpiece, a grand mosque. Then he asks the same question to the angels Tarot and Salilus.
