Nero calls on Valerius to become the Defender of Rome - to seek out this rebel sect, to capture its leader Petrus. To fail will be to forfeit his life and the lives of twenty thousand Judeans living in Rome. But as Valerius begins his search, he will find that success may cost him as dearly as failure.
