Queen Idia of the great Benin Kingdom in the Midwestern part of Nigeria is the only child of her parents. Her father dies a few weeks before she is born and her mother dies a few minutes after giving birth to her. She is adopted by her uncle and grows up to be a very beautiful, fearless and strong woman. Idia is also blessed with mystical powers. Her ultimate goal is to make a difference in the Kingdom but first she has to contend with the customs and traditions of the Land and her co-wife, Ohonmi. All through the film, these contending situations throw a wrench in Idia’s resolve to present women’s matters in the Royal Court of the Oba (King) of Benin Empire, stop the killings of Kings’ mothers and also attain the highest position a woman can hold in the Kingdom - Iyoba (Mother of the King and Kingdom). She uses everything in her arsenal - Wit, Guts, Strength, Mystical powers and a mother’s love to achieve her Goal.
