In the tradition of Ben-Hur and The Robe, this is an historical epic set in the Roman-occupied Mediterranean. It is the tale of a young Syrian-Greek aristocrat who is accused of sedition and condemned to death. After narrowly escaping Roman justice, his intent is to journey to Jerusalem and reunite with the beautiful Greek girl—a devoted follower of Jesus—whom he has loved since childhood.
