The Genius of Egypt is the incredible story of the world’s first multi-faceted genius, Imhotep, and his amazing adventure from humble student to magical healer to eventually becoming the savior of the entire kingdom of Egypt. Set in 2600 BCE, Imhotep’s journey includes themes of courage, the quest for knowledge, and the idea that believing in yourself is where your true power lies.
Imhotep’s journey starts as a young scribe devoted to learning while being guided by his wize and knowledgeable father, Kanofer. It doesn’t take long before Imhotep discovers he has an extraordinary skill for healing wounds and curing sickness. This magical talent elevates him to the royal heights of Egyptian power when he saves the life of the Pharaoh’s daughter. But his success is short lived when a 7 year curse befalls the entire kingdom and Imhotep must go on a dangerous quest across an unyielding desert and crocodile-infested water to save the empire.
