An Armenian legend tells of a princess, Tamar, who lived with her people on an island. Although she was meant to marry according to her family's dictate, she met and fell in love with a man from the mainland. They hatched a plan: Tamar would light a candle so her beloved could safely swim to her. They met secretly in this way until a tragic turn of events led to his death.

This tragedy hangs over the head of the current princess Tamar. Named after the young woman from the legend, Princess Tamar lives on the same island as her namesake. She has no wish for her own life to repeat the tale of doomed love.

Aleena, her sister, tells her she must forge her own path-even if it means taking a risk. Princess Tamar isn't so sure. The thought of falling in love only to lose her beloved is too much to bear, so she throws herself into art: fairy tales, music, and dance.

Her passions take her to a folk dance group, where she meets a man who shares her zest for life. But can their growing love protect him from the fate foretold by legend?
