In Spring 2007, the Egyptian Museum allows the public to see Pharaoh Hatshepsut’s body for the first time. Leila hears the news, but fails to convince her parents and friends to travel to the exhibition with her. She fills the transparent box she wears on her head with items related to her obsession with the Pharaoh Hatshepsut’s box, wanting to discover the ruler’s secret of dominance. Fed up with her parents rejecting the idea of her being the new Hatshepsut, Leila decides to use a divider in her box to separate her obsession from the rest of her life items, in order to gain power like her role model. She goes on a journey and discovers the power within her.
