While betrayals and counter-betrayals dominate Gregor's every waking moment, his niece Manel is sent by her rebel comrades into the desert on a mission to kill.
While betrayals and counter-betrayals dominate Gregor's (Rufus Wright) every waking moment, and the young puppet Sultan, Madu (Danny Ashok), becomes increasingly reckless in his quest to satisfy his cravings, Gregor's niece Manel (Aiysha Hart) is sent by her rebel comrades into the desert on a mission to kill.
What she discovers there is a threat even deadlier than Tumanbay's brutal new rulers.
Tumanbay is created by John Dryden and Mike Walker and inspired by the Mamluk slave rulers of Egypt.
