This struggle between Christian and pagan in ancient Rome thrills on the grand scale. The half-mad Emperor Nero delights in burning the city and blaming the fire on the Christians so he can slaughter them. In the midst of this, Rome's Prefect has the misfortune to fall in love with a Christian maiden and to be desired by Nero's powerful Empress, whom he spurns. The stage is thus set for a spectacular enactment of some of the most chilling events of all time.

Returning to Rome after 3 years in the field, General Marcus Vinicius meets and falls in love with the devout Christian, Lygia. She doesn't want to have anything to do with the warrior. Though Lygia grew up Roman, and as the adopted daughter of a retired general, Lygia is technically a hostage of Rome. Marcus gets Emperor Nero to give her to him for services rendered. Lygia is not happy about this situation, but she falls in love with Marcus anyway. Meanwhile, Nero's atrocities get more outrageous. When he burns Rome and blames the Christians, Marcus goes off to save Lygia and her family. Nero captures them and all other Christians. He decides to make a sport of it by throwing them to the lions.
