Sicily, 1677. From his deathbed, Charles III's viceroy, the marquis of Castle Rodrigo, names his wife as his successor. Eleanora de Moura is a highly intelligent and capable woman who immediately applies her political acumen to heal the scarred soul of Palermo, a city afflicted by poverty, misery and the frequent uprisings that are their consequences. But the machinations of powerful men soon result in Donna Eleanora, whom the Church sees as a dangerous revolutionary, being recalled to Spain. Her rule lasted 27 days - the exact time it takes for the moon to complete a cycle.

Sarcastic and funny, this allegory about the abuse of political power to serve one’s own
lustful and greedy needs could apply to most of nowadays so called “modern”governments.
The feminist angle adds to this witty and very entertaining tale.
