In order to prove to Roman Emperor Julius Caesar that the Egyptians are still a great people, Queen Cleopatra decides to have a palace built for him in the middle of the desert within three months.
Numérobis, the architect tasked with the project, seeks the help of the great Druid Panoramix, in the hopes that a magic potion capable of granting superhuman strength to the imbiber will allow the ambitious deadline to be met. Warriors Astérix and Obélix accompany the druid on his journey to Egypt.
