Summary: Shows the struggle between Christian and pagan in ancient Rome. The half-mad 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 falls in love with a Christian maiden, while spurning the advances of Nero's powerful empress
