Based on the popular books by Robert Jordan, The Wheel Of Time is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it.
The series follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organisation called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers.
There, she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity.
