Pompeii, Italy, AD 61. A Roman noblewoman gives up her hedonistic lifestyle to shelter street children in Ancient Rome.

Meet Lady Alexandra Marcius as her new faith is tested by divorce, the sudden death of her parents, and a failed attempt on her life. A woman of regrets, “Lady Zan” shelters homeless boys and girls from the horror of the streets at a time when Roman emperors engaged in child prostitution. As Lady Zan’s new faith spreads throughout the empire, a paranoid emperor takes drastic measures to stop this new form of Judaism.

Will Lady Zan abandon her faith in order to survive?

Find out what happens during one of history’s most terrible persecutions.
