Once a princess of a now vanquished kingdom, Lygia lives as a hostage in first-century Rome. Vinicius, an arrogant nobleman accustomed to getting his way, decides to have her as his own. But Lygia's deep faith rattles his pagan beliefs, as he first tries to take her by force, but then decides to woo her instead. As Vinicius pursues Lygia, her behavior and that of Rome's entire Christian community-the expressions of love, compassion, and forgiveness-begin to stir his selfish heart.Emperor Nero soon steps up his persecution of Christians and when Lygia is ensnared by his murderous plans, Vinicius must declare his allegiance to Nero or to the one true God.
