The story

A recently widowed Duchess makes a daring choice: she marries for love, defying her powerful brothers who believe they control her destiny. This act of rebellion ignites a power struggle. Consumed by a toxic mix of greed and a warped sense of entitlement, the brothers unleash a campaign of cruelty to bend the Duchess to their will. Caught in a bloody struggle for autonomy, the Duchess must fight for her newfound love and carve her own path. But will her defiance come at a terrible price?
