The Empress Dowager

This is a dramatic movie about the fight for power between the Empress and her nephew. Tzu-hsi promised her nephew he would have total freedom to reign as he wished when she turned the throne over to him. Instead, she fights him at every turn. She is used to having power, and she keeps exercising it. The two become engaged in a political battle for power.

This battle for power will pit every person associated with the throne against each other. Everyone in the palace must choose who they will back in the fight. There is no way to remain neutral.
