An Egyptian girl fights amid intrigue and corruption for the completion of the world’s greatest man-made waterway.

Recent events have placed the Suez Canal in the global spotlight. One of the world’s most vital waterways, the Canal was originally hailed as a link between civilizations, between Western science and Eastern mystery.  This adventure is set against the epic creation of the Canal.

Heroes coming of age... and changing history.
