On her journey to power, Cleopatra has a love affair with Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison), and their relationship takes her to the Roman Empire, where she struggles to win the approval of the Senate and the citizens. Complications arise, and she finds herself in another love affair with Marc Anthony (Richard Burton), who’s caught in the middle of his own power struggle.
