Filmed on location in Toronto and Ireland, REIGN follows a story hidden between the lines of the history books; the story of Mary Stuart, whom the world comes to know as Mary, Queen of Scots. Reigning as the Queen of Scotland from the time she was just six days old, the teenage Mary is already a headstrong monarch – beautiful, passionate, and poised to begin her tumultuous rise to power. Arriving in France with four close friends as her ladies-in-waiting, Mary has been sent to secure Scotland’s strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French king’s dashing son, Prince Francis. But the match is not signed and sealed: it depends more on politics, religion, and secret agendas than affairs of the heart. With danger and sexual intrigue hiding in every dark corner of the castle, Mary rallies her ladies-in-waiting and steels herself, ready to rule the new land and balance the demands of her country and her heart.
