A mysterious prophecy resounds, and the bewitchingly beautiful princess Draupadi arises from the sacred fire in Panchala. Draupadi is in love with Arjuna, the Pandava prince. But fate weaves a strange story and Draupadi finds herself wedded to five men ? Arjuna and his four Pandava brothers. Draupadi?s life is complicated further by the Kauravas -- her husbands? wicked cousins-- who try everything in their power to harm her and the Pandavas. The fiery princess Draupadi?s terrible destiny begins to unfold. From majestic queen with five warrior husbands, she is reduced to a servant girl. Evil waits at every corner, and a great war looms ahead. Her only comfort is her friend, Krishna. Will the impulsive Draupadi brave the humiliation destiny has written for her? Must she lose everything she has loved? Adapted from the ancient Indian epic, the Mahabharata, this is the story of an astonishingly outspoken woman, who is abandoned at every turn, and forced to make the difficult choice between revenge and compassion.
