Translated from the Italian.
Two wild Germanic brothers, Armin and Wulf, are held hostage in Rome to keep their father from rebelling against the Roman Empire. There they are moulded into ideal Roman soldiers; brave, disciplined, ruthless. Then a conspiracy arises that threatens the Emperor and they alone must decide whether he lives or dies. As young men the brothers are separated and they serve in the Roman military at opposite ends of the Empire. Armin begins to realize he cannot escape his origins and works to unite the tribes of Germania under one banner.
