Empress Elisabeth of Austria is idolized for her beauty and renowned for inspiring fashion trends. But in 1877, ‘Sissi’ celebrates her 40th birthday and must fight to maintain her public image. While Elisabeth’s role has been reduced against her wishes to purely performative, her hunger for knowledge and zest for life makes her seek out the excitement and purpose of her youth. With a future of strictly ceremonial duties laid out in front of her, she rebels against the hyperbolized image of herself and comes up with a plan to protect her legacy.
