Julius Caesar force-marches eight crack legions into Spain to subdue the sons of Pompey in the final, savage battle of a remorseless struggle for world dominance. But there is an unlikely hero who refuses to give in to the despair and horror of war, who refuses to accept that Roman cruelty and greed have changed his beloved hometown forever. This is a story of bravery, love, invention and hope.
