Queen Ximena is devoted to her people and will gladly sacrifice herself for them, even if it means her death. Her bodyguard, Zefirino, is devoted to her and will gladly sacrifice himself to keep her alive. When a terrible enemy suddenly attacks their planet, how will they protect those they love without losing each other?
Together they survive an assassination attempt, invasion, and capture, but they both know that their duty may eventually tear them apart. How can Ximena give her life for her people when she knows that Zefirino will die trying to save her? Who does she put first: her planet, or the lover she isn't even supposed to have?
