Yuri, a teen of the 21st century, has been transported to ancient Anatolia as part of a scheme by the evil Nakia, Queen of the Hittites. Only the intervention of Nakia’s stepson, Prince Kail, saved Yuri from the Queen’s bloodthirsty intentions. As an unintended consequence, the people of the kingdoms of Anatolia have embraced Yuri as the incarnation of the great war-goddess Ishtar.
Wedding day for Kail and Yuri has arrived, but Nakia is still on the loose. There is thought of postponing the nuptials, but with guests arriving from the nations allied to the Hittite Empire, the decision is made to proceed. Part of the ceremony involves the bride bathing five times in the waters of the holy springs in Hattusa, which worries Kail. Water being the medium of Nakia’s magic, the ceremonial bathing would give her a prime opportunity to strike!
