'The Tale of Princess Fatima' - the only Arabic epic named for a woman - recounts the thrilling adventures of a legendary warrior known throughout the Middle East. After being abandoned at birth, Princess Fatima, otherwise known as Dhat al-Himma, must rely on strength and cunning to take her to the head of a powerful army. Bitter tribal warfare, stealthy ambushes, and globetrotting pursuits will eventually lead Fatima back to face her father, and to confront in a mighty showdown another fierce warrior woman.
