History draws us into a plot for the throne of England between 1455 and 1485.
The country finally knows peace under the reign of King Edward IV. But his younger brother, Richard, supports neither his power nor the happiness of his court.
Disgusted by his hermaphroditic but power-hungry physical appearance, Richard secretly dreams of taking his brother’s place. He, therefore, decides to eliminate any person who will hinder his access to the throne.
We follow his meteoric rise to power, using his skill at deceiving people and his great intelligence.
