Billy Zane stars as the biblical figure Barabbas in this made-for-TV feature directed by Roger Young. The drama recounts the story of the violent thief Barabbas who was freed and spared death by prefect Pontius Pilate (Filippo Nigro) over Jesus (Marco Foschi) at Passover prior to his crucifixion. A subsequent arrest sentences him to 20 years of labour in a dangerous mine where he is tortured by the knowledge that an innocent man died in his place. Upon release, fate grants him the chance to become a Roman gladiator and the opportunity to fight for his freedom.
