Perpetua, a wealthy noblewoman just coming of age in Carthage, discovers Jesus at a time when Christians are being thrown to the beasts in city amphitheaters for sport. Rejecting the gods of the ancient Roman Empire, she embraces a passionate relationship with Jesus and falls in love with a man who shares her faith. Together they navigate the treacherous, bloodthirsty waters of the decadent social culture, secretly forming friendships with the Christian plebeians and slaves they now call brothers and sisters. But betrayal and jealousy threaten to expose their faith to the Roman authorities, and every step seems to take them closer to the ultimate sacrifice.
