As Mount Vesuvius churns in the distance,

a runaway slave and a nobleman craving justice join forces.

In the coastal town of Pompeii, a new gladiator star is on the rise. But the gladiator hides a deadly secret: she's actually a runaway Jewish slave named Ariella, who's disguised herself as a young boy. A savvy fighter, Ariella determines to triumph in the arena, knowing her life would be forfeit should anyone uncover her truth.

Cato, a wealthy politician, resettled in Pompeii after tiring of the corruption in Rome. But he soon learns Pompeii is just as corrupt, and if he doesn't play the game, his family could pay the price. Determined to bring about justice for the citizens of Pompeii, Cato searches for allies. But what he discovers instead are a confounding group of Christians... and a young female gladiator whose fame is growing daily.

Political unrest reaches a boiling point, as Christians are jailed and executed, and the mountain in the distance threatens to destroy the city with a river of fire. Cato and Ariella must act quickly and courageously to save their loved ones before all is lost.
