Swords and Sceptres is a period drama film set in 1857. This historical epic focuses around a tale of female empowerment and tells the true story of Lakshmibai, the memorable Queen of Jhansi who boldly led her army to battle against the British East India Company in that infamous mutiny.

Atomic Arts were charged to do what needs to be done when going back in time: periodisation, set extensions, creating & embellishing large realistic battles scenes, and of course, destroying historic buildings.
