Summary
In the year 64 C.E., the corrupt and maniacal Emperor Nero torches Rome, and is advised to blame the ensuing destruction on the unsuspecting Christians. Meanwhile, Roman Prefect Marcus Superbus falls for an innocent and beautiful Christian maiden, Mercia. When the seductive and wicked Empress, Poppaea, learns that she has a rival for Marcus' affections, she conspires to send all Christians to a chilling death
