Synopsis

Sword and sandal epic which imagines the later life of the biblical character Barabbas (Anthony Quinn). Released from prison when the crowd chose his freedom over that of Jesus, Barrabas quickly returns to his life of crime. A subsequent arrest gets him sentenced to a lifetime's work in the silver mines, but fate grants him the chance to become a gladiator and the opportunity to regain his freedom. Meanwhile, throughout these adventures he becomes increasingly troubled by the knowledge that an innocent man died in his place.
